Additional 'Requirement' constructs can be added to a 'Requirement Diagram' via drag-and-drop. Below is an outline of the steps necessary for adding a 'Requirement' construct to a 'Requirement Diagram':

  1. Within a 'Requirement Diagram', click the 'Requirement' icon in the 'New' tab of the left sidebar and continue to hold down the left mouse button.

    Click New Requirement

  2. Drag New Requirement

  3. Release the left mouse button while over the diagram canvas to drop the new 'Requirement' and add it to the diagram.

    Drop New Requirement

    Notice the 'Requirement' stays selected once it has been dropped. Since it is selected, the toolbar changes to include buttons for functions which can be used on the construct. The sidebar also changes to include additional 'Attributes' and 'Metadata' tabs.

  4. Once added to the diagram, enter a meaningful 'Name' for your new 'Requirement' via the 'Attributes' tab of the left sidebar (focused automatically for convenience).

    Name Requirement

  5. Click the 'Save' button located on the toolbar to persist your changes to your project's database.

Please Note:
  • The above process describes using the ‘New’ tab of the left sidebar, which automatically generates a new entity to represent each new diagram construct. If you would like to reuse existing entities from your database to represent a new construct, use the ‘Existing’ tab instead.
  • For more information on this construct and how it is represented in the database model, see Requirement Diagram Constructs.
