Alternative to numbering Requirements & Tests?
Question ID: 110596

Have recently returned to the world of ALM / Quality Centre for all Requirement, Test Planning & Test execution.
My first take in the new job was to update exiting test cases to accomodate the new requirements along with revised requirements. Finding it a bit of a mess where numbering is concerned. Any suggestions for how I go about implementing a new system? I’m stuck! Thanks 🙂

The ID/numbering of ALM's entities is set by incrementing integers to the next available one (e.g. for requirements).  If you have a new project, all entities start numbering at 1.  If you were to import 100 Tests, for instance, it would use Test ID's 1-100.  If you deleted all 100 Tests, then interactively created a test, it would be Test ID = 101.  In effect, you "burned up" 100 id's.

As for having ALM do some different numbering scheme, that would be up to you - done in a User Defined Field, but ALM needs the internally assigned ID to keep track of the various entities.
