  5. Edit baseline page
  6. Freeze requirements

This action will create a page with a summary of the baseline.

Name

A simple title like "Baseline 1" is generally enough. It can be changed later by changing the title of the page. The template is based on the Baseline blueprint.

Links

As people keep updating the requirements after this baseline:

  • The text and properties of the "frozen" requirements won't change.
  • In Jira, it is possible to link to the current version or to a baselined version of requirements. If someone has linked to a baselined version, they can manually "upgrade" to a later baseline.
  • In Confluence, it is possible to link to a specific version: In the editor, either paste a URL directly, or click on the macro and choose the version number.
