Import Requirements and Hierarchies in CSV




See also


You can import Requirements from a spreadsheet application in CSV format. Before doing this you must create a CSV import file specification that:

In the Default Types field has the value requirement,package to import requirements and a package structure to contain them
Has the Preserve Hierarchy checkbox selected
Identifies the data fields on the spreadsheet that are to be translated into Enterprise Architect, in the order in which they are plotted across the spreadsheet
Is to operate on a spreadsheet containing the CSV_KEY and CSV_PARENT_KEY fields (which, if not generated by a CSV export from Enterprise Architect, you have added and populated yourself)


This enables you to import the individual and grouped requirements from the spreadsheet into Enterprise Architect, and to reconstruct the hierarchies of Requirements in the target package in the Project Browser.
