Import, Update, and Export Requirements

Integrate Requirements Toolbox™ with third-party requirements management tools

Integrate Requirements Toolbox with third-party requirements management tools to import requirements from external sources, update imported requirements when you make changes in the third-party tool, and export requirements to third-party tools. You can import the requirements and manage them with Requirements Toolbox or import the requirements as referenced requirements and manage the requirements in the third-party tool.

You can import requirements from external applications such as Microsoft® Word, Microsoft Excel®, IBM® DOORS®, and IBM DOORS Next, and other applications that can export requirements using the ReqIF™ format. You can also export requirements from Requirements Toolbox to a ReqIF file.
