Find Requirement — Find Now tab

Select the Find Now tab to view the search results.

Field Description

Container Name

The Dimensions RM container name for each requirement found.

Note: Existing relationships will not have a container name associated with them.

Class The class name for each requirement found.
ID The puid for each requirement found.
Object ID The objId for each requirement found.
Title The title for each requirement found.
RM Project Name The Dimensions RM project name for each requirement found.
RM DB The Dimensions RM database name for each requirement found.
RM url The Dimensions RM browser URL name for each requirement found.

Container Type

The Dimensions RM container type for each requirement found.

The container type is either a Dimensions RM baseline or a Dimensions RM collection.

Open button

Select all or a subset of requirement objects and click Open to open them in the desktop client's content window.

The results list contains the current requirements from each Dimensions RM container associated with your current working project/stream. If an individual requirement is current in more than one container, it is listed more than once.

The Open button is displayed only if you are finding requirements to open them. The button is not displayed if the dialog box is used in other context, for example, when finding requirements to relate to other objects.

The normal desktop client object selection criteria apply.

Known issue: You can select a specific requirement from different containers more than once in the Find Now results, and open a requirement display. But the display will contain the requirement only once, regardless of how many times you selected it.

The requirement that is displayed is the one selected last in the results list. Any Dimensions RM container data visible will relate to this selection only. To open a requirement from a specific container, we recommend using the Catalog node in the My Current Project/Stream.

Note: This issue applies only when using the Find dialog box to open Requirement views.
