Create and export views in the Coverage Explorer

Coverage Explorer enables you to analyze the relationships established across items in your project and identify gaps. For example, you can use Coverage Explorer to identify if any requirements lack verifications, or to ensure your requirements trace to “passed” verifications.

A view can contain a maximum of 500 items per level. You can bookmark a view to highlight and prioritize it. Only the view's creator can rename or delete it.

  1. Select Projects in the header, then select Project > Traceability > Coverage Explorer.

  2. Select Add Coverage View to open the Select Items window.

  3. Select the items you want to analyze for coverage.

    To change your view, use the tabs at the top: Recently Viewed, Explorer, Filters, and Releases.

  4. With the items selected that you want to analyze, click Select to close the window.

  5. (Optional) To hide, show, or reorder fields for that level, click the gear icon at the top of the Coverage Explorer.

  6. (Optional) To add a new level of downstream relationships, click the green plus button.

    You can add only one item type per level. However, if you add a downstream level and leave the item type blank, Coverage Explorer displays all items regardless of type if type isn't selected.

  7. Click Save.

    You can deselect the star by clicking on it.

  8. (Optional) Click Export to generate an Excel document.
