Test Plans - defect type

  • 1.  Test Plans - defect type

    Posted 08-18-2020 09:40
    Has anyone ran into the error message below? We have/are setting up the use of text plans/cases/runs. This included configuring the project with the built in 'defect' item type. It seemed to be going ok but suddenly we received this message. It sounds as if admin or project mgr is supposed to create yet another item type called 'defect type' and add it to the item types under 'configure project' although it seems as if this would usually be handled by a pick list. What does this error message mean? How to resolve?

    Your image didn't come through so I'm guessing a bit. Essentially you can create any item type to be a defect, but for the system to know that the item type is "special" and should be treated as a defect you need to update a setting. As your image didn't come through I'm unsure if mine will, but when you edit the item type there is a field labeled "Use as" which needs to be set to defect.

    If I guessed wrong on your issue please open a ticket with support.
