Trace View

Trace View shows related upstream and downstream items. It also shows item details in context of their relationship, as well as any missing coverage (downstream relationship).

  1. Filter item types in Trace View.

  2. Configure each level to display or hide fields.

  3. Find any gaps in coverage.

  4. Export the content.

  5. Add related items directly from this view with the Add menu option in the toolbar.

  6. Establish relationships between existing items.

You can also display fields for various item types. For example, you can display the Test Case Status for verification and verification testing. If a test case item is visible in Trace View, you can navigate downstream to see any test runs generated from the test cases.

Understanding the Trace View interface

In the Source section, Trace View displays the items that were visible in List View, Reading View, or Single Item View from the time the Trace View was initiated.

  1. The source

  2. Direct downstream items

  3. Blue arrows = Travel upstream (left arrow) or downstream (right arrow)

  4. Top of each level column = Number of item types on the entire level


The item count is a unique count. If the same item is downstream of multiple items in the source column, it appears multiple times in the "1 level down" column, but it's counted only once.
