Filters

To obtain an appropriate range of data you can filter the Requirements and Test Cases with built-in filters that refer to the Fix Version/s field and connection with a given requirement or use saved filters. Each filter list has its own searching categories. The filters selected in the Requirements and Test Cases add up and do not represent a part of the common.

Note

Each category is displayed in the filter list when at least one value matches that category.
