This section explains how to manage requirements in Silk Central.

A requirement is a condition or capability that a user needs to achieve a specific task, which must be met by the application under test (AUT). Associate your requirements and tests to enable measuring how well your software covers the specified requirements. Multiple tests can cover a single requirement and multiple requirements can be covered by a single test. Integrating external requirements management enables you to coordinate the requirements management features of Silk Central with other tools you may already be working with. The Requirements area enables you to manage and control the system requirements during development. You can create, modify, and delete requirements, associate tests with requirements, track the changes in the history, and generate tests directly from requirement lists.
