Defects Management

Table of Contents

Qualibrate has a dedicated module for defects.

The Defects module sums up all the defects raised on your current project regardless of the way it was added: created directly from the Defects module, created during a manual or an automated test execution.

Defects module provides important characteristics of a defect which are preconfigured by default. Configuration of the fields, workflow and layout can be changed by the Account Administrator.
