Deleting a Requirement

Deleting Requirements

Prior to Deleting a Requirement

Prior to deleting a requirement, there must be an existing project, release, and requirement that has been created in Zephyr. The project/release must be selected and the user must be under the Requirements section within the release selected. 

Scenario: You are a testing manager in Zephyr. As a testing manager, you want to delete an existing requirement.

If this is your first time managing requirements, you might want to work within a test project rather than an actual project in the system, and that way, you can work out any issues you might have with managing requirements before you work with live requirements.

1. Select/check off any of the requirements that you want to delete on the left hand side of the table.

2. Once you have your selected requirement(s) to delete, you simply click the "Delete" button at the top of the table.

3. There will be a pop-up that gives you two options:

  • Deallocate - This removes the requirement from the current release but keeps the requirement within the Global Tree/Folder. You can still retrieve and use this requirement if you want to by utilizing the Global Tree/Folder.
  • Delete - This removes the requirement in its' entirety and you cannot get the requirement back.

4. Simply click on the "Delete" button and the requirement will be removed from the system.
