Click the Requirement Details tab in the main window to display the Requirement Details view, which displays each requirement and its attributes for a document in a table.

Select a document from the pull-down menu in the upper left corner of the Requirement Details view to populate the first column of the view with a list of all the requirements, derived requirements, macro-requirements, and entities for the selected document.

The Requirement Details view displays a new column for each attribute defined in a project document source file or added to the project. Each attribute column specifies the state of a Boolean attribute or the value of a Value attribute.

Use the Requirement Details view to rename or delete a category of attributes that were added to a document. You cannot rename or delete attributes defined in a project document source file. Right-click the header of the attribute column and select Rename or Delete from the context menu to rename or delete all the attributes of that category in the document.

Sort the rows of requirements in the following ways:

  • Right-click the header of a requirement row and select Sort by identifier from the context menu to sort the rows of requirements by ascending alphanumeric order. Restore the default sorting by right-clicking the header of a requirement row and selecting Sort by default from the context menu.
  • Select the header of an attribute column to sort the elements using the values of the Value attributes for the requirements.

  • Text—Text associated with the selected requirement and defined in the project document source file.
  • Added TextText that you add to the selected requirement.
  • Messages—Displays helpful information, including rule violation details, for the requirement you select.
