Using link validity in ELM applications

Link validity is a status on a link between artifacts to indicate whether the contents of two artifacts meet the intended meaning of their link. Learn about using this information to achieve consistency across, and propagate changes through, linked data.

Only Quality Management (QM) applications: Before you can view link validity status information, you must have configuration management enabled for the project. If your project does not use configuration management, you can enable suspect link traceability for the project. See the related topics.

Note: If you enabled configuration management in all your ELM applications, enable link validity in both RM and QM applications. Starting from 7.0.0 release suspicion profiles are no longer supported for RM projects that do not use configuration management. You must enable link validity in the RM application. In QM, use Suspect traceability in Quality Management artifacts for projects that do not use configuration management and enable link validity for projects using configuration management.
