Standard questions to be asked when logging bugs

In my last post (here) I spoke about different do’s and don’ts when it comes to logging bugs.  What I really did not hit on was the different types of questions I feel should be asked when logging bugs.

Here are my questions, in no particular order.

  • Platform
  • Application Version #
  • Environment
  • Title
  • Short Description
  • Details Steps
  • Data used during testing
  • Module/Sub Subsystem (if applicable)
  • Is Reproducible
  • Screen Shot (if applicable)
  • Attachments ( if applicable)

The above is the list of data I think is valuable in order to property address and fix bugs. 

Did I miss any?

Till next time,

Easily the most important thing to be logged (besides the issue itself) to me, is the steps to reproduce.  What exactly were you doing before the problem happened?  Where did you start from?  Which company/customer/entity where you using? What was the EXACT error message?
