There is often confusion as to what should be displayed in the Traceability Matrix.
There are 3 places in ORCANOS System where user can see the Traced Info
WORK ITEM GRID
we have the Column “Traced Items Info”
This column displays all the related items (either upstream -> or downstream <-)
Check the Traceability TAB for the first item in Grid
TRACEABILITY REPORT FROM WORK ITEM > MORE OPTIONS LIST
It displays all work items pointing to Filter results i.e: Downstream – where filter results are the target (Direction of the related item is <-)
For E.g: Object A is linked to Item A1, such that Object A is target and direction of the link is Object A <– Item A1. So, Item A1 would be listed in Level 1 Column
In case of Item A1 is linked to Item A2, such that Item A1 is target and direction of the link is Item A1 <– Item A2. So, Item A2 would be listed in Level 2 Column
In case of Item A2 is linked to Item A3, such that Item A2 is target and direction of the link is Item A2 <– Item A3. So, Item A3 would be listed in Level 3 Column
The same traceability Report can be added as the Panel with the Report Type – Traceability Matrix
In Traceability Report, Last Run Status depends on the selected project version.
If the User selects the lower version of the project then the Last Run Status of the test case executed in the lower Project version gets displayed.
If User selects the Advance version of the project then the Last Run Status of the test case executed in advance Project version gets displayed.
TRACEABILITY REPORT FOR BRANCHED ITEMS
If Item is branched then it will display Branched ID (Original ID) in the project version where it is branched.
In a lower version where the Item is created, it displays Original ID only.
