Defect

This chapter provides information about Defects.

Defect can be defined as an error or bug that appears during the test execution. As a result of finding such bugs in Test Case Execution, tester creates a defect. Defects are related to the whole Test Case.

Note
In RTM app defect is a separate issue type. Make sure you have added defect issue type to the RTM project.

Defect can have different root causes. It can relate to the current Test Case Execution or be an unclassified bug.

Those defects, which are clear and easy to classify, can be created from Test Case Execution level. Ones that appear as a separate problem and cannot be linked with any Test Case, are created in Test Management section (Test Management > Defects > Add defect).
