Element Browser


Right-click on the list of tests to display the context menu (if in the Element Browser, click on a test of the appropriate type).




Click on the appropriate option, either:

Import element constraint(s)
Import element requirement(s)


The Import Constraint or Import Requirements dialog displays (the two dialogs are identical).

The dialog lists all of the internal requirements or constraints in the selected element.




Select one or more of the items to import as tests, and click on the OK button.

Each item is added to the list of tests in the Testing window, as a standard, 'Not Run' test.
