Synchronizing Requirements Across Tools

Note: Use the property mapping feature to map property fields. If you don't use the property mapping feature, only the name and the description of the requirements are mapped. For more information, see Editing Property Mapping.

To synchronize requirements between Silk Central and an externally configured requirements management tool

  1. In the menu, click Requirements > Details View .
  2. Select the Project node in the Requirements tree.
  3. Click the Properties tab. The Properties page displays the properties of the selected tree-element.
  4. Click Synchronize Changes.
  5. Click Yes on the Synchronize Requirements confirmation dialog box to begin synchronization. A dialog box opens when synchronization is complete, displaying synchronization statistics, including the number of requirements that have been created, updated, and deleted.
  6. Click OK to complete the synchronization. Any updates that were made to mapped requirements in your externally configured requirements management tool are now reflected in the Requirements tree.
