B.3 Step by step method

21.9163GPPRelease 16Release descriptionTS

This method is to be used when the hierarchical structure is not known or when the "direct method" above does not show the expected results.

In this case, the 3GPP Ultimate web site has to be used:


As a preliminary step, it is essential that the "Customized Selection" is set to "All TSGs" (otherwise, a filter would be applied).

Figure B.3-1: Selecting "All TSGs" in "Customized Selection" as to remove any potential filter on the Search

Then select the "Work Plan" tab (upper red arrow in the figure below).

Figure B.3-2: Using the 3GU Portal to retrieve more information on a given Feature

Then the search might be performed by either typing the Acronym (as shown by the left red arrow on the figure above, using the example "MCPTT"), or by the name or UID (right box) then by clicking on the "Search" button. Watch the "Granularity (Level)" field, which is a filter to return only the Items which level is specified here.

In the results, the icon depicting some binoculars has to be hit (lower right red arrow on the figure above).

This will lead to the page shown in the figure below:

Figure B.3-3: Window resulting from a "Search"

On this window, the "Related" tab has to be clicked, as pointed by the red arrow in the figure above. This will lead to the window depicted in the figure below.

Figure B.3-4: "Related" tab in a Work Item search, with links to all related Specifications and Change Requests

The two links pointed by the red arrows in the figure above lead to the pages containing respectively all the Specifications and all the Change Requests (CRs) linked to this Feature.
