This is a short guide on using the Requirements Tracking System tool (RT) used in the IGE project to support the collection and handling of requirements from the stakeholders of IGE. The document supports the implementation of the IGE Requirements Management Process. This guide is targeted at those wishing to view and easily register Globus-related requirements with IGE through the lightweight guest account. Please see the How to Register Requirements with Us section on the Community Requirements page for other ways which may be more suitable for you.
If you experience any issues or difficulties in working with the IGE RT system, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
