There many systems that can be used to archive Stories through integration or simply exporting and importing to a repository. But the key is traceability, especially for Audits.

How to create Feature Traceability Matrix
On the basis of the Business Requirement Document (BRD) are treated as Features, and then broken down to User and Technical Stories.

Let's Go Ahead and create RTM in Testing
Step 1: Example
"Verify Login, when correct ID and Password is entered, it should log in successfully"

Step 2: Identify the User Story that this test case is verifying. For our test case, the User Story is T94 is being verified.

Step 3: Note this User Story (T94) in the Test Case.

Step 4: Identify the Feature for which this TR (User Story) is defined

Step 5: Note the BR (Feature) in Test Case

Step 6: Do above for all Test Cases. Later Extract the First 3 Columns from your Test Suite. RTM in testing is Ready!

Advantage of Feature Traceability Matrix

  • It confirms 100% test coverage.
  • It highlights any requirements missing or document inconsistencies.
  • It shows the overall defects or execution status with a focus on business requirements.
  • It helps in analyzing or estimating the impact on the Agile team's work with respect to revisiting or re-working on the test cases.
