Tickets Management Module
The QACoverage Ticket module is but one part of a fully integrated test management solution that includes requirements tracking, test case management, reporting, and agile integration. This module allows users to create defects during or outside of test runs, import defects in bulk, track their progress, and manage defects within agile sprints.
In nearly every ticket management tool, users can create and edit defects. But with QACoverage, ticket tracking and management is much more detailed. While most commonly used ticket type is Defect, QACoverage also offers options for Risk, Enhancement, Question, and Task – each of which have their own detail fields available.
During or after creation, tickets can be pulled into Sprints, assigned to any QACoverage user, attached to test cases (and by association, test runs), and tracked using the various available statuses. The assignee can be changed as needed as the ticket moves from developer to tester and back again. Or if developers don’t use QACoverage, the assignee field can help track the workload for each tester.
The Ticket Management section gives a detailed overview at-a-glance using either a grid with filtered columns or a color-coded pie-chart. The grid offers the defect summary, product version, assignee, sprint, defect type, and status with filtering options on each column. While in the ticket tracking section, users can create new tickets, import them in bulk, export, edit existing ones, archive, or add defects to sprints. All of these options make defect management and tracking simple and easy.

Plentiful Ticket Details Aid in Defect Remediation
When the ticket type, Defect, is chosen – generally the most commonly used defect type in software development – users can choose to enter enough information to make root cause analysis considerably easier. In addition, regression tests can be more focused in historically troublesome areas, such as certain operating systems, browsers, or devices. All of the available information also makes progress tracking extremely simple.
For The Defect Type:
Summary – This quick summary is shown in the defect tracking grid, so it’s best to keep it brief.
Status – Defect statuses available are: Open, New, Assigned, In Progress, Ready for Promotion, Ready for Retest, Re-open, Rejected, Suspend, and Requires More Info.
Product Version – Entering this information helps to show which versions were defect heavy, thus pointing to areas of the application that may need regression testing focus.
Assignee – The person creating the defect is automatically recorded, but the assignee could be the developer and then later the QA professional retesting it.
Sprint – Current or future sprints can be selected for planning purposes.
Type – This helps narrow down the defect to aid in developer assignment, tester assignment, and automation updates. Options are UI, Functional, Database, Localization, Compatibility, and Performance.
Severity – Options area Minor, Major, Critical, and Blocker.
Device – Options are Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile.
OS – Applies primarily to desktop applications.
Browser – Choose from any of the major browsers to help the developers isolate the defect cause.
OS/Model – This text field can narrow down the defect cause even further.
Description – A full length description can be added and formatted here with the WYSIWYG.
Priority – Options are Low, Med, High, and Urgent.
File – To aid in fixing the defect, documentation can be added.
