Requirements Backlog

In addition to the domain backlog, there is the Requirements Backlog view that you can use to move requirements to another package.

You see:

  • Which requirements are in a backlog
  • Which requirements are related to each other
  • how high the total effort of the requirements in a backlog is

You can:

  • Drag and drop requirements to another backlog or create references
  • Grouping and sorting requirements
  • Edit, derive, refine requirements,
  • Create new requirements
  • Navigate to other views
Good to know
By default, this view displays all requirements from the package Requirement Definition of domain/ Requirements or Use cases.
The view

The Requirements backlog view is divided into two areas. On the left there is a (domain) backlog and on the right side you can see further backlogs (packages). Distribute requirements from the domain backlog (left) by simply dragging and dropping them onto another backlog (right). You can decide whether to move the requirement or create a reference.

The Move command removes the requirement from the source container and moves it to the target container.

If you choose Create reference instead, the requirement remains in the source container and a reference (link) is created in the target container. At the same time, the reference is identified by a corresponding icon. As soon as you move requirements to another backlog, you can see at the top of each container how much work is involved in the requirements and whether the activity – if one is assigned – is overplanned or not.

Good to know
If you want to add more or different columns, configure the view using the Edit command in the context menu.
