Change Request Field Reference (CMMI)

You can track change requests for CMMI work items by using these six HTML fields: Justification, Impact on Architecture, Impact on User Experience, Impact on Test, Impact on Development, and Impact on Technical Publications. A description and a reference name for each of the change request fields are provided in the following table. When you open a work item form for a change request, the Justification field appears on the Justification tab, and all other fields appear on the Analysis tab. For more information, see Change Request (CMMI).

Note Note

The Change Request work item type is provided only with the process template for Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) CMMI Process Improvement.

None of these fields are reportable or indexed. They all have a data type of HTML. For more information about data types and field attributes, see Working with Work Item Fields.
