How to add comments

  1. In the Comments section of an ALM entity, click Add Comment.

    A new section is added to the Comments box, displaying your full name, username (in angle brackets), and the database's current date.

    Note: If the SHOW_FULL_NAME_IN_COMMENT parameter is set to N, your full name is not displayed.

  2. Enter and format your comment.

    When you add comments, ALM allows you to edit and remove the existing comments, including the comment headers.
