What is the label function?
The label function improves your opportunities to describe your bug more concise than before. A good labeled bug gives our client good details about a bug’s type and location the at first view.
It is very simple to label a bug:
Just enter a label in the label field while writing your bug report. You can choose your label freely. There are no restrictions with regard to the chosen labels. Just choose labels used by other testers or create your own appropriate label.
Here are some examples for good labels:
$$$ bugs that can cause costs
GUI graphic errors (Graphic User Interface)
Picture & Video problems with picture or video
Usability suggestions for improvement
Email bugs with email (e.g. confirmation email)
Link bugs with links (e.g. broken links)
Contact bugs with contact formular etc.
Security bugs that affect security
Navigation errors in navigation
Registration errors within the registration process
Product choice problems with the product choice (e.g. a product cannot be
deployed to the shopping basket)
Ordering procedure problems with the ordering procedure (e.g. order cannot be submitted)
Due to our standards of quality there are two new labels that are obligatory to use. This is what they stand for:
rewrite Only the project manager may use this label! If you find a bug (you can also search for it) with this label, you are allowed to resubmit this bug in better quality. So examine the bug reprot carefully and improve it, so that it meets our standards.
improved This is the label that you have to label your bug with, if it was submitted earlier by an other tester and you improved it. Also do not forget to add the original bug’s ID in a comment to your bug report.
