Severity vs. Priority6:25 with Ryan Saul
An important distinction to make when you are reporting bugs is between the severity and the priority of the defect. This video describes the difference so that you can better understand and report effectively.
- Severity: A rigid definition of how bad a defect affects the system graded from lowest to highest.
- Priority: What the company's rank is for when to fix a defect in relation to other things that are being worked on.
- Feature Request: A proposed change to the software that is not a flaw or defect in the intended use of the software.
- Defect backlog: The list of defects that are not currently assigned to be worked on, but are known to the company and could easily be pulled in when there is extra time.
