Related Item Breakdown


List the Items according to the link type of their Traced Items


For example: Run a filter for all system requirements, and this report will show the related items breakdown by each type.

We have 200 items and some of them have relations to test cases (50), some for detail design (25)

10 items have relation to Detail design and Test case

*** If an item has 2 relations of the same type (for example test case) – it counts as 1
