Cameo Requirements Modeler Plugin 19.0 LTR SP3 Documentation


You can create specific properties in requirements specifications. This will help identify the requirement’s version, complexity, priority, severity, status, and other properties. Use the UML Profiling and DSL Guide to extend Requirements with custom properties. Add custom properties to the general properties list by extending the ExtendedRequirement class.

Customizing procedure details are described in Creating Customization Data and Using Customization Data in the UML Profiling and DSL Guide.


To create custom properties


  1. In your project, create a Package for your custom properties.
