The NI ATML TR type browses a specified Automatic Test Markup Language (ATML) Test Results (TR) report file—or a directory that contains ATML TR report files—for test results that reference the ID of a requirement in an upstream document.

Use a document of the NI ATML TR type to specify any XML file that conforms to the ATML Test Results and Session Information schema, such as a TestStand ATML TR report file or LabVIEW Unit Test Framework Toolkit report file. The ATML file must specify a step result that references the ID of a step defined as a requirement in an upstream TestStand document or specify a test result that references the ID of a requirement in an upstream specification document.

Tip Tip  The ATML report file TestStand generates conforms to specific ATML Test Results and Session Information schemas depending on the version of TestStand you use. Refer to the NI website at and enter the Info Code tsatmltr5 for information about TestStand support for the ATML Test Results Standard.

The ATML report file that a LabVIEW UTF test generates conforms to only the approved version 2.02 of the schema.
Note Note  National Instruments does not guarantee that the NI ATML TR is compatible with ATML files generated by other external applications.

Traceability Elements

The NI ATML TR type captures the following traceability information from an ATML TR report file:

  • Section—The results in an ATML report file, the ATML files within a directory, and the critical failure stack for failing units under test (UUTs) or results sets.
  • Reference—A result with a unique ID that refers to a step in a TestStand sequence file or to a requirement in an upstream specification document.
    Note Note  To use a TestStand ATML report file to cover a step in a TestStand 2012 sequence file, you must enable the Include TestStand Extension Elements option on the Contents tab of the Report Options dialog box in TestStand 2012 before you generate the ATML report and use it in a Requirements Gateway project.
  • Attribute—Indicates UUT, result set, UTF coverage, and test or step result information.
  • Reference Attribute—Indicates the status of a test or step result in a TestStand ATML report. The NI ATML TR type does not define a reference attribute for a LabVIEW UTF report file.

Configuring an NI ATML TR Document

Use multiple ATML report files in a single project document to cover requirements. Requirements Gateway considers upstream requirements covered if the combination of ATML report files in a single downstream NI ATML TR document covers the requirements.

The NI ATML TR type defines the following document settings you configure for an NI ATML TR document on the Details tab of the Project pane of the Configuration dialog box:

  • File or Directory—The ATML report file or directory that contains ATML report files to use. Click File Browse to launch the Select Files to Include in Document dialog box, in which you can select one or more ATML report files.
  • Variable—Defines the following variables:
    • Category—Assigns an analysis category to the NI ATML TR document. Select a category from the Value pull-down menu. Use the Overall Quality pane of the Management view to review the use of analysis categories in a project.
