Customizing the Defect Description

Defect Template enables you to build the description in a way that fits the standard in your organization.
The default template generates a basic defect description, built automatically with the information provided while reporting a defect. You can leave it with the default, or customize it if you wish:

  • Go to Settings and click on Defect Template menu option. The editor will display the default defect template.
  • Click on Save template button once you are done with the customization.
  • Enter the fields you want to add to your defect report, using any of the available tags shown below.
  • Use the Preview tab to test your entry.

Tag format is #TAG_NAME,Prefix# (adding the comma is mandatory)

For example: Assume LAB name is Cycle 1.0

  1. #LAB,# will generate Cycle 1.0
  2. #LAB, My lab:# will generate My lab: Cycle 1.0
