Defects can be logged during or after your test run execution.

When stepping through a test run using the Test Pad, you can also create a defect at the step level along and automatically input the steps to reproduce within the defect description.

This opens up naive new defect submission form. Testers can quickly fill out any system and custom fields conveniently pushes the tester back to execution to finish their results. Testers can quickly fill out any system and custom fields.

Defects are displayed in multiple areas:

  • Testers can receive current status of associated defects by viewing the test grid and the defect summary view.
  • The summary view allows for actionable insights into blocked requirements and if the test is ready to be re-tested.

If testers need to associated a defect after a test run has been completed, click on the test run and navigate to the failed steps.

Defects are managed in team and personal queries within the defect module. This allows defect assigner to easily triage the defect workload within each project.

To create a query, customize from the list of system queries. Here I am building a new query that pulls in all defects associated with my username which are in a new status. I can then save this as a personal query or make this available to view by my entire team.
