Editing Requirements

To edit the properties of a requirement:

  4. Type a Name and a Description for the requirement.
    Note: Silk Central supports HTML formatting and cutting and pasting of HTML content for description fields.

    Note: In the Details View on the Properties page and in the Document View, inherited properties are marked with asterisks (*).
  6. Select the appropriate Priority, Risk, and Reviewed status from the lists.
  7. If custom requirements were defined, they are listed below the Reviewed list. Type in the corresponding field any custom property data that you want to track with this requirement. This is disabled for inherited properties. For details regarding creating, editing, and deleting custom requirement properties, see Custom Requirement Properties.
