Filtering the list of test cases based on requirements

Gabor Federics (3412) | asked Mar 03 '16, 12:18 p.m.
I need to select the test cases that are validating specific requirements, and add them to a test plan / create execution records, etc.
Is there a possibility to filter the list of test cases based on the validated requirements? The "Has requirement link" / "Does not have requirement link" possibilities are not succifient - I need to be able to query the test cases per requirement.

Hi Gabor,

Unfortunately, QM does not provide such capability to filter based on specific requirement.
I'm not sure exactly what your user scenario is.  But if you're trying to create test case in a test plan based on requirement or requirement collection.  I wonder have you considered reconcile functionality yet?

Hi Jing

Thanks for the prompt answer.

Our problem is that some of our requirements are validated by a huge number of test cases (50 or even more). I'd like to select some of these cases for execution: either to put them in a new plan or just to generate new TERs for them. But I don't see the possibility to get a simple list of the test cases that are validating one requirement. Reconcile would be an option, if I could link a requirement (not a collection) with a test plan. Is there a possibility to do so?

Hi Gabor,

Test plan can only link to requirement collection.  So that would not work for you in this situation.
