  • Changes you can expect in Requirement Management

  • New Capabilities in Requirement Management


What changes can you expect in Requirements

We have upgraded the capabilities for Requirements so when you login to SAP cloud ALM , you will find

 UI Changes

  • When you create a Requirement from a process , it does not open a third column , but  a full screen so that you have more space to enter Text

  • The Requirement Header has changed as now there are more fields

  • Scope is not a mandatory field as you may want to save the Requirements first and add the scope information later

  • The status changes do not appear as workflow but as flexible drop downs. This is to ensure you can easily go back to previous states if required

Changes in Approval process

  • Approval of Requirement is not limited to Project leads, this is done as many times Requirements need approval from LOB heads , architects or other stakeholders

  • Approval does not set the status to in Realization. This is because the actual work may start even before the approval or at a later time after approval
