Can I report defects from Testuff?

Use our nifty Bug Reporter to export defects to your tracker. We have made it specially so that you can comfortably report bugs without the hassle of filling out an excess of form fields. It also allows to you easily take screenshots and add attachments. If a video was recorded during a test, then the video will be attached to the defect reporter automatically.

Not working with a bug tracker? No problem. You can use Testuff Defects module to track your defects. Report defects, edit them, attach files, update their status, etc.… it’s all there.

How do I report defects?

First of all, set up the tracker integration. Then you may open defects in several ways:

  1. Go to Defects screen and click on the Add Defect button for reporting bugs, which are not test specific.
  2. Fail a step during a test run to open the Defect Reporter. The bug will be reported for the test you are running at that time.

Can I report using an existing defect?

If you find a defect while testing, but you know it was reported already, you can use that same defect. Saves time, and helps keep the defects list shorter and more efficient to work with.
In the Defect Reporter, click at the bottom on Link an existing defect, search for the defect by text or by #number and click on the Link button when ready.

Can I add custom bug tracker fields to the defect reporter?

You’ll find it in the Bug tracker integration settings where you may configure the required fields for the defect reporter.

Also, when reporting a defect, consider checking the Open defect in browser checkbox. This way, after exporting the defect to the tracker, it will automatically be opened in the browser so that you can add any additional fields you like.

Can I customize the reported defect fields?

From Settings select Defect template. Click Edit to build it your way.
See more details on how to do it here.

What about customizing my defect status values?

Many users want to match their reported defect statuses to the values they have in their bug trackers. That’s why we support customization of the defect status values in Testuff.
Go to the Settings and select Customization. Go to Defect Status and click on Edit. Click the Add New link, to add new values, or hover an existing value and click it, to edit it.

Defect Severity

The Defect Severity field is added to any bug report, and always shows in the bug reporter as part of the description. You can control its values going to Settings->Customization. Then find the Defect Severity section and click on Edit button. If your tracker includes a same field, Testuff will replace the values for it with the tracker field’s values.

Associating defects to requirements

You can assign a reported defect to a requirement, even if the defect was not reported from a test that was previously assigned to this requirement. Check mark a defect and click on the three dots menu. Select Link to requirement and all available requirements will show. Select the requirement, and the defect will be linked with it.
