Requirements Traceability Report

Requirement Traceability Report is a snapshot of the relationship between your test cases and requirements from the external issue trackers like Jira.

Understanding the relations between test cases and requirements is essential for ensuring the success of any project.

By analyzing this connection, teams can gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of their testing efforts and can make informed decisions to improve quality.

A Requirement Traceability Report provides insight into how each test case aligns with project requirements, allowing for better tracking and management of testing efforts.


Requirement Traceability Report is a snapshot of the relationship between your test cases and requirements from the external issue trackers like Jira.

At its core, the report provides insights into the number of linked requirements and identifies any un-linked ones, providing you with a clear overview of the test coverage status.

Furthermore, it offers detailed insights for each linked requirement, showcasing the specific test cases associated with them, as well as the testing status of each test case.

If a test case has failed during a recent run, the report also highlights any associated defects, providing visibility into the defect status.

The Report enables you to quickly assess the current state of testing for each requirement, identifying any failed tests and corresponding defect statuses, thus empowering teams to prioritize and address critical issues effectively.

Tracking changes

In addition to capturing a snapshot of testing status at a specific point in time, you have the flexibility to generate new versions of the report, as needed.

This helps track changes in test coverage, and execution status status over time providing a historical record of testing progress and improvements.

Generate new versions to compare different snapshots, identify trends, and measure the impact of changes in testing efforts.
