Coverage Modes

Silk Central provides two modes for coverage. Full coverage and direct coverage. The status of a requirement in the full coverage mode considers the status of the child requirements and offers a cumulative view of the tests that cover the requirement. If one or more child requirements have the status Not Covered, then the full coverage status of the selected requirement is also Not Covered, even if the coverage status of the requirement is Covered. The full coverage mode enables easy evaluation of whether or not requirements are covered by tests.

The status of a requirement in the direct coverage mode is calculated based only on the status of the tests that are directly assigned to the requirement. Child requirements are not considered in calculations.
