Managing project or component properties in requirements projects

Each project template contains predefined artifact types. You can also create customized artifact types, artifact attributes, and artifact data types for a project or component. Those artifacts types can then be used by team members to create project or component requirements or related artifacts, such as customized collections.

Before you begin

You must be assigned to the administrator process role to do these tasks.
