  1. Hi Helmut,
    is it one way (import only) or can you synchronize? As it is working on ReqIF, does it support other tools like CodeBeamer, DNG, Polarion…? Thank you for following up,

  2. Hi Heinz,

    currently, it only supports import of ReqIF. I’ve tested it with DOORS and ReqIF Studio.

    In principle, it should work with all tools supporting ReqIF. Because the reality is sometimes complicated it’s better to test it with the requirement tool you intend to use.

    If you send me a ReqIF file I’ll test it.

    Best regards,
