Traceability matrix query/report
Trying to use the Traceability Matrix functionality in HPQC version 11. We set up a number of Traces to and from Requirements. And there are situations where Requirement A is traced to Requirement B and Req B is traced to Req C, but Req A is not directly traced to Req C. What we are looking for is a report or query or some way to get all of the Requirements that are traced to a particular Requirement (such as Req A) whether it is directly traced or traced to a Req that is traced to Req A. I hope that is clear. The Requirement Traceability Matrix report functionality doesn't seem to do it. I did a Report with Cross Filters and that didn't do it. I wanted to try a query, but the Req_Trace table only has a few fields and I couldn't figure out the relationship between the RT_Trace_ID, RT_From_Req_ID and RT_TO_req_ID in order to determine how to get everything that is traced from one 1 requirement.
Does anybody have any ideas?
If you use a query to get a record you know the trace-ability for then the use of each of the fields should be pretty clear if you can't work it out from the doco. If you are only interested in A->B and A->B->C then you can prob just write queries for each, add a field for tagging with direct and indirect and getting the union of the two. Basically though, RT_Trace_ID is just the identifier for the record in the trace table, the other to are the ids of the two requirements in the REQ table for which the relationship exists.
