Filter functionality in ALM helps users to view a specific data based on certain criteria. Filters are applicable across all modules viz. Requirements, Test Plan, Test Lab and Defects.
Let us understand how it works in Requirements module. Users can specify one or more criteria in the Filter dialog box.
Select a Field, the "select Filter" dialog box opens. Specify the Filter and click "OK". Users can use combination of filters - use "OR" or "AND" etc.
Upon clicking "OK" after selecting the filter criteria, the main filter dialog displays the selected filter.
The Filter would be applied for the selected entity and can be traced what filter is applied by looking at the filter status bar.
