Constraint Status Types

In an element Properties definition, each constraint's status in the development process is defined in the constraint Status field. You can select the appropriate value from a drop-down list, which initially contains the system values:

Implemented
Build
Validated
Approved
Mandatory and
Proposed

 

You can add to or replace any of these values with your own custom values.
