Creating defect designs
Create a design for a new defect type
When you have a new defect type that is going to be used within your project you can create a new design for it.
Depending on your permission settings, you may not be able to create designs. Contact your administrator for assistance.
- Go to the Designer module and select Create design.
- Select the Defect type from the list of design types.
- Complete the design form, see Creating designs.
Confirm settings in the left panel and select Create.
The completed design is displayed in the right panel. A basic custom defect design has four system attributes associated with it that appear in all defect items based on your design.
- Defect Number
- Reported Date
- Remedied Date
In addition it includes a set of default link attributes, for example:
- Related defects
- Raised jobs
- Defect inspections
You cannot edit these links as they are required by the system.
- You can now customise the design by adding custom attributes to the design, which can then be used to create defect items.
