Closing of defects on (crucible)

Hi All

I have two questions.

- The author/moderator creates a review; then reviewer raises some defects, the author fixes those defects but here how does the author mark/highlight that the defect is now fixed. This way that defect stops appearing on the comment search utility.

- Secondly, it seems that the author can close a review even with open defects/comments. How can we prevent the review from getting closed when there are open comments/defects (I want to avoid the scenario when the author cannot fix the defect and he simply closes the review to improve his statistics). Is it possible that the reviewer performs some kind of validation that the defect is now fixed to his satisfaction and only then the author can close the review.

Crucible is very forgiving -- you can close a review with no reviewers, for example, but its reporting tools don't take this into account. In my opinion, better reporting tools are more useful than more strict controls.

There's at least one 3rd party reporting plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/biz.deref.flyover.flyoverForCrucible) that's much more thorough.

Ok. Thanks Sergey. Is there a way to close an individual defect? At the moment we are simply converting a defect into a comment once we fix the defect?

We want to flag the defect as fixed. Is it possible on crucible?

I don't think it's possible

We use a Custom Classification called "Status" to show whether a defect is Open or Resolved, but Crucible doesn't recognize it, so we have to manually verify that all defects are "Closed" before closing the review.  Crucible Advanced Search makes this only semi-painful.
