Bug Reporting Guidelines

Currently we are mainly taking bugs on:

When there is a production instance running, progression of code is normally from Dev -> UAT -> Prod


  • Please check the trackers to see if the bug you are reporting has already been reported:
    • Trac is the primary repository for reporting of Bugs.
    • LaunchPad also has some tickets logged.
  • Please provide full details to reproduce the problem, like the example below.
  • Be clear on which system your test is run against - e.g.
  • 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)

Bug Priorities

  • Critical - big functionality, stability and data integrity defects in a Production instance
  • Major - functionality and data integrity defects in UAT only
  • Minor - UI, Style, Usability defects
  • Trivial - Data validation defects, Domain defects


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

Release Version:

High Priority Focuses for testing

Production testing is done as a result of doing Data Entry - this is usually the critical path as we're always short on data & this is the area which needs to be made more bullet-proof & smooth. Data Entry tasks are coordinated using a Google Spreadsheet, like this one used for Haiti.

Testing Coverage

It would be good if the QA team specializes on testing certain modules in the system. More than one person can subscribe for a module and report their test coverage. The TestCases Page helps you with test coverage. Please select an area for testing and add yourself to the page

  • TestCases page is the main page where all testers work off from and handle assignments and coverage
  • UAT is a static version for testing before it gets uploaded to production. Please do the majority of your testing here
  • The Dev environment is updated quite regularly, so don't be surprised to see some effects
  • The Dev environment has modules activated which are not in Production, so log these bugs as Low priority for now: DVI, Vol
