Issue Details

I am a software architect and I am using NI Requirements Gateway to trace all requirements of a software which is developer by a team of different developers.

Is a Requirements Gateway additional installation and license needed for each software developer?


No, NI Requirements Gateway should be installed only on the architect/project manager computer to be able to to link traceability information from external applications, to cover project requirements and to configure the specifications and working documents you want to analyze using built-in or custom document interfaces.

Each developer, working for example with LabVIEW, TestStand, LabWindows™/CVI, doesn't need to install NI Requirements Gateway too but should specify coverages as explained in Specifying Coverages section of in the the specific software environment page in NI Requirements Gateway Coupling Series tutorial.
