ReqSuite® Requirements Manager (RM)
Interface Settings

In the course of tool-specific interface settings (see Figure 1) for a ReqSuite® project, its individual content categories can be selected in the right table using check boxes and thus activated for synchronization via this interface. In addition to the necessary selection of the project to be synchronized in the downstream system under “Project in tool“, the selection menu “Synchronization point” can be used to decide when the content data of selected content categories should be synchronized.

The “Full Synchronization” checkbox allows you to enable or disable bidirectional synchronization of content between the two systems and, in the former case, to select the leading system for conflict resolution.

Figure 1. Sample interface settings for tool type “JIRA”

By clicking on the writing board symbol behind each selected category, you can map the elements from this category with elements in the downstream tool (see Figure 2).

First you specify the element category to which the category is to be mapped in the downstream tool (in the example, “Target” from ReqSuite® is mapped to “Task” in the downstream tool). You can then define whether only elements from ReqSuite® that correspond to the given filter criterion should be synchronized. If you leave the filter empty, all elements will be synchronized as needed.

In the following table you can assign attributes of elements of the category from ReqSuite® to attributes of elements in the downstream tool using the buttons “New attribute assignment” or the pencil symbol Attributes of elements of the category from ReqSuite®. For the “Status” attribute, it is then possible to map individual status values.

Note: ReqSuite® currently supports JIRA and TFS as downstream systems for data synchronization and therefore only offers these two interface types for project assignment. Gradually, the selection of further interface types will be extended according to demand.
