In RQM, how can you link a Test Artifact to a Work Item in CCM

Hello All....

I am wondering if there is a way from within RQM in which a Test Artefact (Test Plan, Test Case etc) can easily be linked to a Work Item in CCM.

The reason for this, occassionally a work item is created in order to remove data from a DB. This has no requirement changes etc, so nothing can be linked in RM. All details are added and associated to the work item.

I can see how this is don via the work item, however I cannot see any way of doing this from within RQM.

Hello,

I have a Development Items section for my Test Cases that I can link RTC Work Items. Are you looking for something different?

Hi Stirling,

Yes, so what I am after in the Test Plan and Test Case is something that allows me to link those test artefacts to a work item artefact that is held in CCM.

I can see I can add the link if I go into the work item in CCM but cannot see how I can do this from RQM.

Hi Jason

I haven't really tested your use case in my set-up but does this help?

I will try this and let know with the findings later.

Hi Sumant,

This is not what I am after.

Where normally you would link a Test Plan and Test Case to a requirement in RM or DOORS I want to link it to a Work Item as no requirement has changed and it may be just a script to delete data out of a DB.
