3 min read
As a tester or developer, having clear requirements can enhance the quality of your software projects. It can reduce miscommunication, prevent project failure, and uncover latent errors early. Requirements analysis and management is the first step in the software development lifecycle. Creating and managing clear requirements in today’s enterprises, which are on the DevOps journey, is a daunting task. Communicating about the changing requirements across teams is an important capability of an RM software. synapseRT for Atlassian Jira, now with a 9.0 version, is a one-of-a-kind app with enterprise-ready testing and requirements management (RM) capabilities that simplify the testing process for the product and IT teams in organizations. It is scalable, easy to install and to use, and has a simple interface that leaves behind the hassle of integrating RM software with a testing toolkit. Enterprises using synapseRT have benefited immensely from its testing capabilities and requirements traceability feature. We now bring you the brand new version with advanced RM capabilities. Now you can do more than track requirements or trace a functional requirement to its origin; you can access versions and changes, store requirements in folders and reuse them, manage the history-of-change, record the arguments behind the changes, and define requirements baselines.
Advanced RM capabilitiesIn addition to the existing requirements traceability feature that allows you to seamlessly track the status of requirements, synapseRT 9.0 has three new features:
Folder Structure of RequirementsUse the new “requirements suite” feature to organize requirement issues into a folder structure. You can now easily group and categorize requirements without using the requirements hierarchy feature. Drag and drop your requirements to different requirements suites to make sure they are properly categorized. You don’t have to rely on tedious manual documentation processes to create and share requirements any longer.
Versioning of RequirementsVersioning is a big boon for project managers specifically. You can automatically record requirements’ changes and label the change history with a “version number.” Versioning helps the user track a requirement’s changes and create a new version of the requirement manually when necessary. Then you can check any saved version of a requirement, or do a comparison between different versions when needed. Users can reconstruct requirements by using the versioning capabilities.
Baselining of RequirementsA requirement baseline includes a set of versions tagged “requirement issues.” Requirements baselines enable you to keep track of changes made to your project over time. Users can compare two different baselines to check for important modifications, additions, and deletions for the set of requirements approved by stakeholders. At sign-off, or the move to a new version/phase, a new baseline can be created to capture the new state of the requirements. To get a complete understanding of how each feature works and how you can benefit from it, take a look at our detailed user guide.
UI improvementssynapseRT 9.0 brings countless UI improvements across the product. We are continually looking for opportunities to improve the product’s usability, and will continue to do so in the future. Understand use cases for all the new features and how you can deliver a seamless software project.
