But there might be chances that during Verify the QA might find it that the problem has not been fixed then again it can reverted back to Developer and status might change from Fixed to whatever which depends on the bug tracker.
As per my knowledge goes-
Status of defect from Developers point of view-
New,Open,In process,Pending Validation,Post production,Close or fix.
'New'-when defect is raised by user/tester.
Note-its not assign to any developer yet.
'Open'-when defect is assign to any developer to resolve it.
'In process'-when developer fixes it,it goes to testing team to verify it.
'Pending validation'-once testing team verifies defect,
it directs to Quality Analyst team to test it.
'Post production'-once defect validate by Quality Analyst team,defect will fix will deploy in production.
'Close or Fix'- Lastly defect is closed by person who raised it.
Status of defect from Testers point of view-
I think defination itself is self-explanatery.Would like to express little bit on 'Deferred status'.
Deferred status- when defect is directed to next release to get resolve, after discussion with developers and Project managers.
I hope you are satisfied with my view.Any reply on this ,is highly appreciable [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
