View Unified Verification Results in Metrics Dashboard and in Requirements Editor

If you are working on projects-based requirements that involve test results from executed tests in Simulink® Test™, you can view the verification results as in the Metrics Dashboard in the Requirements Editor.

If you make any changes to a design requirement, the digital thread is capable of detecting such changes and determining their influence on subsequent design components and the need for retesting. You can enable the digital thread to invoke callbacks in additional tools to facilitate the creation of trace data for the resulting artifacts. To enable artifact tracing, in the Digital Thread Settings window, select Track tool outputs. Alternatively, type this command in the command prompt.

You must always enable the Track tool outputs option when you work with verification results in Requirements Editor. For more information on artifact tracing, see Enable Artifact Tracing for Project (Simulink Check).

If artifact tracing is disabled in the project, you might have to run your tests again so that the verification results are updated. In this case, the Requirements Editor shows a banner at the top to indicate that artifact tracing is disabled. To enable it, click here on the banner message. If clicking on the here in the banner message gives an error, then change the project settings. Go to Home > Preferences > Project > File Management and select Set Writable using the file system from the Read-only project files drop-down list.

If you cancel the artifact analysis option before it completes, the results might be stale. In this case, the Requirements Editor shows a banner at the top to indicate that artifact traceability is outdated. Click here on the banner message to resume the previous artifacts analysis operation.

To visualize unified results in Requirements Editor, follow these steps:

  1. Add the project to MATLAB path and open it. Make sure that the project has a requirements set with Simulink test file associated with it.

  2. Open Requirements Editor. In the Requirements Editor, select Columns > Verification Status.

  3. Open Simulink Test Manager and run the tests by clicking Run.

    Run the tests using Run button on the Test Manager

  4. The Requirements Editor automatically displays the verification results for the tests. Go to Requirements Editor and view the verification results.

To fully leverage the capability of the unified verification status while working with test and result files, keep these considerations in mind:

  • If you modify an existing test file and save it in Simulink Test Manager, Requirements Editor displays stale results when you click Refresh. Run the tests again in Simulink Test to view the updated verification results in the Requirements Editor.

  • If you export the results file before deleting the same results file from the Test Manager, Requirements Editor is able to display the last updated results.

  • You must export a result file only after enabling the Track tool outputs option.

  • You must export the test file to the same project.
