Identify selection-based links having description fields that do not match their requirements document text

Check ID: mathworks.req.Labels

Verify that descriptions of selection-based links use the same text found in their requirements documents.


You used selection-based linking of the Requirements Management Interface (RMI) to label requirements in the model's Requirements menu with text that appears in the corresponding requirements document. This check helps you manage traceability by identifying requirement descriptions in the menu that are not synchronized with text in the documents.

Available with Requirements Toolbox™.
