Create, Edit, Copy, and Delete Requirements


qTest Manager allows users to either create, edit, import, or delete Requirements in the qTest Manager environment. Requirements describe in detail what needs to be achieved for the software developed to meet its objectives.

Import Requirements from an External ALM

qTest Manager allows you to store requirements so that testers can easily access information for test coverage. Many users will have already created requirements or user stories in another tool, such as JIRA. To import requirements from an external tool using an out-of-the-box integration, see the following articles:

Even if you import requirements from an external tool, you can still separately manage requirements that are not integrated. To create requirements in qTest Manager, you can create them using the interface or by importing requirements from Excel.

Create a Module

Requirements are nested inside Modules. Therefore, we recommend that you first create a Module to better organize Requirements. To create a new Module in qTest Manager, perform the following steps. 
Note: If you already have a Module in which you want to create a Requirement, skip to the Create a New Requirement section of this article.

  1. Select Requirements.
  2. Select the New Project Module icon from the left navigation panel. 

  3. Create a name for the Module. You can also enter a description for the Module.
  4. Once done, select Save.

Create A New Requirement

Now that you have created a Module, you are ready to create a Requirement. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Navigation panel, select whichever Module in which you want to create your Requirement.
  2. Select the New Requirement icon. 
  3. On the Requirement page, enter the Name of the requirement.


  4. In the Properties area of the screen, click on any field and fill in the appropriate information.  You can also add more custom fields to the requirement in your project's field settings.
  5. Select Save.

Edit Requirements

You can edit Requirements at any time. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select your Requirement.

  2. Edit the Requirement in the "Properties," "Resources," or "Comments" sections.
    Note: Any changes in Requirements will be tracked in the History section.
  3. Select Save.

Copy or Move Requirements

Copy Requirements:

Right click on a requirement from the left navigation panel and select Copy from the drop-down. Right-click on a destination folder/Module, and select Paste.  

Move Requirements:

Right click on a requirement from the left navigation panel and select Cut from the drop-down. Right-click on a destination folder and select Paste.  

Similarly, you can move requirements using the Drag & Drop function:

  1. On the requirements tree, select one or multiple requirements to copy/move.  To select multiple requirements, hold the Ctrl key and then click.
  2. Drag the selected requirement(s) into the destination Module.

Copy or Move Requirements Folders

You can copy and move folders of requirements in the same way as copying or moving requirements. You can either right-click on the folder from the left navigation panel to Copy or Cut, then Paste.  Alternatively, you can select the folder from the left panel to drag and drop into the desired location.


  • All subfolders or objects under copied/moved Modules will also be copied/moved.
  • You can reorder the Modules structure by Drag & Drop function to move Modules to any position beyond Root and Modules.
  • If you copy or move a parent Module with its sub-modules to the Root, all associated sub-modules will be copied or moved to the same level as the parent Module.

Delete Requirements

On the Requirements tree, select one or multiple requirements and right-click to select Delete

HINT: Test Cases linked to deleted Requirements will remain unchanged.  Deleted Requirements can be restored from the Recycle Bin.
