The elements under a type in the Types List on the Types pane of the Configuration dialog box define how Requirements Gateway identifies traceability information in a text or XML intermediate file. Type elements use regular expressions to specify patterns in the text of the intermediate file for Requirements Gateway to identify instances of an element. Types that use XML intermediate files also specify the structure of the XML data to identify traceability information.
You do not need to define all elements for a type. Define only the elements you need.
After analyzing a project, Requirements Gateway displays the elements in the main window.
Requirements Gateway types define the following elements.
Refer to Chapter 5, Customizing Types, of the Getting Started with NI Requirements Gateway manual for a tutorial on customizing type element definitions.
