Severity for bugs | Targetprocess - Visual management software

Severity for bugs

Severity defines how serious a bug is and how badly it affects the functionality. Severity is a predefined field for Bug.

Default severity values are Blocking, Critical, Normal, Small, Enhancement. Blocker severity usually means that the system or functionality is currently unavailable because of this bug. Enhancement is the lowest severity used for minor bugs or typos.

A higher numeric value for Importance means a lower priority.
