Coverage Views

Views can be accessed and created in the Coverage Explorer by any user with Read permissions to the project.
Only the creator can rename or delete the view.
A view can only contain a maximum of 500 items per level.
Users can favorite a view to highlight and prioritize any views.

Adding a Coverage View

select the Add coverage view button on the top left of Coverage Explorer. Choose the item or items to be used as the origin. Coverage Explorer can view sets from the normal item explorer, the releases view or the filter view.

Note: The preview button will only show the item page; it will not preview the actual coverage view.
