The new Polarion Connector for Simulink® is now available for download

By Adrian Whitfield

Just in time for Polarion 22R1, The new Polarion Connector for Simulink® is now available for download. This new version allows for a much-improved user experience over earlier versions of the connector. For the first time, Polarion itself has been directly embedded into the Simulink desktop client to support a larger set of customer use cases and reduce inconvenient app context switching.

Another first for the new connector is that it will work with Simulink requirements. Users can then use the popular drag and drop approach to create traceability between requirements and model elements. Then depending on connector settings, surrogate Simulink items can be created in Polarion for any linked model elements. These surrogate Simulink items are rich in information too with block parameter data and where applicable model diagrams. The integration automatically links the surrogate Simulink items back to original Polarion requirements as well.

If you make changes to either your Polarion requirements, or your Simulink model, these changes can reflected in corresponding tool and flagged as suspect.

As with earlier connector releases you can navigate from Simulink model elements to its associated Polarion Work Item and vice versa. Extending the supported use cases even further, users can work with Polarion Live documents directly or across the entire Polarion project scope. When working with Polarion Live documents, it is possible to work with document baselines or earlier revisions.

We also simplified setting up the connector to work with multiple Polarion servers or multiple projects within each server. A Polarion project can also work with multiple Simulink models at once.

The new connector is available now from our Polarion extensions portal and works with Mathworks Simulink Family 2021b and newer, including Simulink, Stateflow, and System Composer. This integration requires the Simulink Requirements toolbox.
