Relationships

Field: Relationships

Description

Relationships allows filtering entities based on their relationships to other entities, relationships can be direct, for example:

  • Scripts that provide coverage for requirements.
  • Assignments in an execution package which are associated to their script.
  • The bugs related/raised during the run of a script assignment.

They can also be indirect, such as:

  • Parent requirements of requirements that are related to scripts.
  • Bugs related to a script or a requirement, via their associated script assignments.

Querying of the relationships index is done via a sub-select, and takes the basic form of:

Relationships IN { ... relationships sub-select query ... }

The query within the sub-select is executed against the Relationships Index and has access to all the Relationships index fields.

When searching the relationships index, you are effectively searching a list of all the relationships each entity has to other entities, both direct and indirect, so you compose your sub-select query in terms of the "Source" and "Destination" entities, the Destination entites expose a number of fields that start with "RelatedTo" which make it possible to identify the related entities.

Two convenience fields are also provided to simplifying searching for related entities RelatedTo and DirectlyRelatedTo which we recommend users become familiar with before branching out into learning how to use the Relationships index and it's fields.

Examples

All scripts related to requirements in the project 'Project X':

EntityType = Script
  AND Relationships IN { 
      RelatedToProject = 'Project X'
      AND RelatedToEntityType = Requirement
  }

All indirectly related requirements for scripts in 'Cycle 1':

EntityType = Requirement
  AND Relationships IN {
      RelatedToPackage = 'Cycle 1'
      AND RelatedToProject = 'Project X'
      AND RelatedToEntityType = Script
      AND RelationshipDepth > 1
  }

All requirements related to bugs with a resolution of "Wont Fix" raised in the last week (demonstrates the use of the Destination field and a nested sub-select back into the Entities Index):

EntityType = Requirement
  AND Relationships IN {
      Destination IN { 
          Type = Bug
          AND Resolution = 'Wont Fix'
          AND CreatedAt >= "-1 week"
      }                       
  }
