Bug Reporting Guidelines

For now we are only taking bugs on:

Progression of code will normally be from Dev -> UAT -> Prod

High Priority Focuses for testing

  • Testing on the selection of markers in the Mapping module on dev
  • Testing of hospitals on UAT

Testing Coverage It would be good if the QA team specializes on testing certain modules in the system, thus we have a testing ownership list below. More than one person can subscribe for a module

UAT version: r603 (2010-01-24 13:02:53) :

Test Coverage:

  • Homepage, Help and Registration - Chamindra - 50%
  • Mapping - ?
  • Organizations - ?
  • Hospitals - ?
  • People -?
  • Victims - ?
  • Requests - ?
  • Volunteers - ?
  • Admin - ?

Rules of Engagement

Ideally this testing is done as a result of doing Data Entry - this is the critical path right now as we're still short on data & this is the area which needs to be made more bullet-proof & smooth. Data Entry tasks are being coordinated using this Google Spreadsheet

If you are doing system testing rather than just encountering a bug during data entry, then please test on the UAT or Dev environment:

  • UAT is a static version for testing before it gets uploaded to production. Please do the majority of your testing here
  • NB The Dev environment is updated quite regularly, so don't be surprised to see some effects (RMS especially is changing rapidly)
  • NB The Dev environment has modules activated which are not in production, so log these bugs as Low priority for now: DVI, Vol

2 Trackers being used:

  • LaunchPad - quicker for Devs, but login required to report
  • Trac - easier for users (anonymous people can report bugs)


  • Please check the trackers to see if the bug you are reporting has already been reported (LaunchPad provides a nice interface for this)Please provide full details to reproduce the problem, like the example below.
  • Be clear on whether your test is against the Live system (Prod) or the test system (Dev).
  • Bug Supervisors may wish to check the Commit Logs to see if they can see the Bug being fixed.
  • Screenshots are good for showing the main problem screen if hard to explain, however, if you get a ticket, then simply the ticket ID would be better than a screenshot, as can simply copy/paste to find the relevant ticket)


System Tested:
Dev/UAT/Prod (select one and specify if it is the dev, UAT or production version)
