From Release 1.3 and above

The additional features for the search, properties and "RY Report" presented in this page were introduced in Requirement Yogi 1.3.

Use properties to search for requirements

All columns of a table are saved as properties and you can search by this criteria. Let's take this example in the editor:

The requirement will look like this:

  • Each column is both included in the title and in the properties,
  • In the current situation, we've defined that the first column was the title.

Requirement Yogi helps you build the query for each property if the name is short (<80 letters) and without space. For example the property "Category" becomes hyperlinked in the popup, which leads to the search screen with the preset query@Category = 'UI Changes'.

Build clean descriptions for your requirements: The "RY Property" macro

To achieve the configuration of the last section, we've added a small macro in the headers of the table. You can see it on the first screenshot, the name is "RY Properties". Here are the options:

  • Anywhere on a requirement, you can define a property and its value.
  • If it's in a column header, it applies to the whole column.
    • You can "rename" the column for the purpose of the properties. Searchable columns can't contain a space.
    • You can "ignore" the column, if the contents are irrelevant for the requirement.
    • You can set which column contains the correct description of the requirement by ticking "Title".

Create reports for those requirements


  • No labels
