Incoming External Reference (IER) Fields
You can create incoming external reference (IER) fields to indicate that a requirement has a trace relationship to one or more objects in a product lifecycle management (PLM) system. This option is only valid when enabled by functionality to create traces between Windchill RV&S and a PLM system. For more information, see the documentation for PTC Navigate Manage Traces.
