In Test Director , when we find a bug in application we will report the bug to developer with its status as: OPEN status as :OPEN
The developer will send the bug status as :FIXEDbug staus as :FIXED
The tester will test the application and he will fine the same bug which he sent to develpor to fix the bug.
Now again tester is going to send the bug(heis resending the same bug)
Now what is the Status of the bugstatus of the bug when we resend it to developerwhen we resend it to developer : (expen,fixed, closed) <font color="green"> </font>
This really depends on your defect process, in the one I use if a developer fixed defect is resent to the developer it would be an open defect. We actually create a new defect and close the first so that we can track this type of situation but either way I would consider the defect as Open.
First Level is "New"
Second Level is in "Dev" i.e. it is assigined to Dev
Thrid Level is "Dev Fixed" i.e. it is fixed from the dev side .
Fourth Level is "Migration Requested: i.e. Requesting for the code migration
Fifth Level is "Migrated to Test" i.e. Retesting the bug after the migration.
Sixth Level is "Closed" i.e. Retested and the bux is resloved (or) "Reopen" i.e. Still the bug exist
In the First Level of "New" status a Developer can also change the status to either " Reject or Defferd" ...
"Reject" comes in the case when the locked bug is not an valid bug.
"Defferd" comes in the case when the locked bug is going to be fixed in the next version .
1) When the bug is found and ready to log into the Test Director or any other bug logging tool the status of the bug should be set to New.
2) When the developer started working on the bug then the status should be set to Open
3) Developer will change the status of the bug to Fixed as soon as they fix the bug and assigns the bug to Tester.
4) Now tester will retest the bug and sets the status to Closed if the bug is fixed or else he will set the status to reopen if the bug is still occuring.
Ideally these are the status:
New->Open->Fixed-> Closed or Reopen
