Purpose

The New Incident logging dialog box lets you log a new incident (also known as a bug or defect) into a connected SpiraTest instance. If you logged the new incident during a manual test execution, it will be linked to the current test run.

How to Open

You can open the New Incident using Tools > New Incident menu, or by clicking the Log Incident button on the Manual Playback dialog box.

Details / Description

incident_logging_details

The Details/Description section lets you enter the short name and long description of the new incident as well as the following fields:

Comments

incident_logging_comments

The Comments section lets you enter a comment that will be logged with the new incident. The field is a rich text field that can contain formatted text.

Schedule

incident_logging_schedule

The Schedule section lets you enter in schedule/effort related information for the new incident:

Attachments

incident_logging_attachments

This section displays the list of attachments associated with the new incident. Since Rapise already has a screenshot capture utility built-in, this section is typically not used.
