Traceability Matrix allows the user to view the traces between different items within the same project. There is often confusion as to what should be displayed in the Traceability Matrix.
User can view the Traceability Report for different Items across different Projects on Solution level. Create a Solution and add the Projects under it. Traces for all the items in different projects will be displayed.
There are 3 places in ORCANOS System where user can see the Traced Item Info
1. WORK ITEM GRID
On Work items grid, we have the Column “Traced Items Info“. It allows to view the traces for items linked (either upstream -> or downstream <-). User can create Filter to view the items from different Project by selecting the option for “Include Items from other version” in Traced Item data on Advance Tab of Filters.
Check the Traceability TAB for the first item in Grid
2. TRACEABILITY REPORT IN MORE OPTIONS LIST ON WORK ITEMS PAGE
On Work Items page, user can see an option for Traceability Report. It displays all the work items pointing to Filter results i.e: Downstream – where filter results are the target (Direction of the related item is <- i.e. Red arrow)
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 Panel
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.
