Defect lifecycle

Defect is the fault in the software product. It can be caused by incorrect code or UI or even documentation. We can categorise the defects based on severity and priority. Examples - Logo not showing on the website is a high priority but low severity defect. Submit button not showing in the web form is a high severity and high priority defect. Any defect (even though it is of high severity type) that would be surfaced rarely can be put into low priority category.

Defect Lifecycle

Typical defect will transition from various states like new, assigned, open, fixed, restest, closed etc.
