My company (and myself) are fairly new to HPQC and we're currently in the process of storing our requirements in Quality Center. I am about to create some traceability and ran into the need to create traceability on group level (at least I think I do). I can create it, but it does not seem to work.
E.g. Sometimes I have a group of requirements that all affect some other requirements (e.g. Usability requirements). One thing I could do is link each usablity requirement to all requirements that are affected by it, which would create a lot of links and is really hard to maintain.
What would be nice is to create a link on group level. This technically possible, but it has none of the functionalities I would expect: When I look a the traceability of one of the members of such a group (so in my example, each individual usability requirement) it shows no traceability nor impact.
Basically I want requirement group members to inherit traceability of its parent. Is this possible?
Basically I want traceability that I set on a group to be inherited by the requirements in that group.
I have a requirement stating (summarized) e.g:
- "The feature should comply with the usability requirements"
I have a set of usability requirements on a separate location (Nonfunctional requirements)
[-] "Usability requirement group"
..- "All functionality should be reachable by mouse and shortcut"
..- "All tasks should be able to be finished within mostly 3 mouse clicks"
..- "All colors should be based on the current Windows theme"
Next I create traceability from the Usability group to the requirement: "Usability Requirement group" affects "The feature should comply with the usability requirements"
So far so good. Next, when I check the traceability of a usability requirement, I want it to show that it affects "The feature should comply with the usability requirements". (And when I do an impact analysis I want to see this as well)
