Showing and setting link validity and validity summary information in ELM applications

Link validity is the status of links between artifacts to indicate whether the contents of two artifacts meet the intended meaning of the link between them. You can use the link validity status to achieve consistency across artifacts and links as you make changes that propagate through the linked data.

About this task

See Link validity in ELM applications to read about link validity concepts and terminology, setting link validity, and about using validity summary information in your project.

For IBM Engineering Test Management (ETM or QM) applications only: If your project is not enabled for configuration management, you cannot see link validity information. Instead, your project would use suspect link traceability. See the related topic to learn about the differences between these features.
