DTP enables you to demonstrate traceability between requirements managed in your application lifecycle management (ALM) or requirements management system (RMS) and software quality artifacts, including:

  • test cases,
  • files that implement the requirements,
  • static analysis violations detected in the implemented source code files,
  • code change reviews, and
  • review findings associated with the implementation files (see Change Explorer).

You can access traceability information either programmatically (see About Traceability Reporting), or by deploying the Requirements Traceability Report extension (see Traceability Pack). 


  • Test, code analysis, or change review data from C/C++test, dotTEST, Jtest, Selenic, or SOAtest.
  • A connection to an external system should be configured (see ALM Tool Integration Overview). 
  • Existing requirements or work items in your third-party system (e.g., Jira stories) 

About Associating Requirement with Files

The requirement details report shows test results data for each requirement. The report can also show information about static analysis violations and code reviews if requirements are associated with files as described in the Associating Requirements with Files section.

About Associating Requirements with Tests

How to associate requirements with tests is described in the documentation for the test and analysis tool used. See the documentation for the following tools:

  • C/C++test (Professional or Standard)
  • dotTest
  • Jtest
  • SOAtest

About Traceability Reporting

You can view traceability information after associating requirements with files and associating requirements with tests in a few ways:
