Generating a Defect from an Issue


Follow these steps to generate a defect from an existing issue.

  • Generating a defect from an issue establishes a new relationship between the items.

  • You can generate multiple defects for each issue.


  1. From the main menu, choose one of the following:

    • Product > Input > Issues

    • Team > Sprint Planning > Issues

    • Team > Sprint Tracking > Issues

  2. From the Edit drop-down menu, choose Generate Defect. The Defect pop-up window opens, populated with all defined Issue details.

  3. Make the necessary changes, and then click Save

The new defect is added to the the bottom of the Backlog grid with a unique ID beginning with "D".
