In the relationships rules, the product requirements are derived from user needs.
Let's say we have:
PR-XX that has two upstream User Needs UN1, UN2
How can I add a new column to the product requirements table in the exported office word document, that contains the list of all upstream needs.
product requirement description
You can add upstream relationships from your product requirements using the upstream mail merge code found on your field reference guide. It will look something like this:
The catch being you cannot specify what upstream item types it will show; in other words, you can't limit it to User Needs—you'll be exporting all items that are related upstream from the PRs.
If you need more on using tables in your word doc, check out this tutorial.
Thank you very much for the reply. Actually I tried to insert the relationship merge mail, but no relationships are exported.
I also tried the default template:
Export --> office templates --> All item details
Then check the parameter "Include Relationships"
but also no relationships are shown in the exported document
Is there any configuration on the project level should be done to enable the relationships in the exported document?
We have a defect filed for the report All Item Details not showing relationships (SOS-DEF-1067). This defect should be fixed in the next release of Jama, 8.12.
This defect should not be affecting your Word template, however. Can you attach a copy of your .doc template (not the export, just the template) so I can take a look and see if anything looks awry? There is not a setting that enables relationships to be exported in reports.
