Hi @Prachi Pandey ,

Issue types are a JIRA concept and are the underlying objects for request types.Keep track of different types of issues, such as bugs or tasks. Each issue type can be configured differently.

Bug is a problem which impairs or prevents the functions of the product.


Thanks for your response.

Hi prachi

Bug is a issue type.issues can be use as parent and child. Also bug can have parent and sub issue (as child). U can not find the different between them.bug is just a type of issues that is at the same level of story, task.
