Article summary

If you have already created your development items, such as requirements, features, workstreams, or change analyses, you can define the test plan by linking these items to existing test activities.

Good to Know!
Once you link tests to development items, they will appear as Covered.

Below are several workflows to select from when linking tests and requirements.


Adding existing tests to a development item

Use this option to link from a single development item, such as a requirement or feature, to one or multiple tests. 

  1. Open up a Requirements / Feature / Analysis
  2. Select the Testing tab > Tests > Add existing tests and use the search box to type the Test ID or Name, then hit Enter.
  3. Select the type of link you wish to create
    • Link
      A link to an existing instance of the test
    • Clone
      The test will be duplicated, and a new instance will be linked to the requirement, feature, analysis, or workstream.
  4. Use the search bar to locate the tests you wish to add.
    You can filter by Cycle to limit the search results from one or more cycles.


    If you select to clone the tests, you can select where in the project tree you wish to create the new instances of the tests. You can also define what elements of the test you wish to clone - Comments, Attachments, Linked development items, and Testers.
