How to Edit Requirements in IBM DOORS

How to Edit Requirements in IBM DOORS

To edit requirements in IBM DOORS®, follow these steps:

  1. Open the IBM DOORS® database containing the requirement you want to edit.
  2. Locate the requirement you want to edit.
  3. Select the requirement and right-click on it to access the context menu.
  4. Select the “Edit Requirement” option.
  5. A new window will appear, allowing you to edit the text of the requirement.
  6. Make the necessary changes to the requirement.
  7. Save the changes by clicking the “Save” button.
  8. Close the editing window.
  9. The edited requirement will now be updated in the IBM DOORS® database.


But instead of using IBM DOORS® for requirements management, you could use a tool that connects components and requirements to technical values and do proper parametric design.
