RTM app bases on relations between Requirements, Test Cases, Test Plans, Test Executions and Defects. It means that in order to use RTM, you need to enable linking.
There are two types of relations: direct and indirect. Direct linking allows to link elements directly, for example Requirement with Test Case or Test Case with Test Plan.
Indirect linking provides an information about further relation, for example Requirement with Test Plan (where Requirement links only with Test Case and Test Case is combined with Test Plan).
Each relation is described at the beginning of chapter. For better understanding, see relation graphs below:
Each Requirement, Test Case, Test Plan, Test Execution and Defect has separate Relations tab, where you can add links. Click Add Link to start configuring.
Test Case Execution has a read-only Relations tab.
Features can be linked with:
- Another Jira issues: choose the type of relation and Jira issue.
- Weblinks: enter the URL of the page you’d like to link and link text.
TipFor example, you can also link to Confluence, where requirement is described in details.
