There is a column called Testing and if the test fails, shouldn't the card move back to development (aka In Progress)?
Is there a best practice that speaks to cards moving right to left vs. left to right? Thank you
I think this is down to how you define your metrics and ways of working.
In an ideal world, a card will move left-to-right - flowing forward through each status. But not every issue moves forward without error.
If testing fails - you could either:
In turn I would define your metrics - so some example reports might be:
Jira is flexible, allowing your team to work the best way for you. I would decide what makes most sense within your reporting and ways of working :)
Hi Ricki, welcome to the Community. For the most part this is a subjective thing. However, let me share my thoughts.
First I am not a fan of moving an issue from development to test unless the testing is being done by the developer (unit testing). If it is a QA function being done by another person then I prefer to have a separate task linked to the development task. This keep ownership clean. If a failure occurs w/in the testing then a bug is opened for the dev team to address and again that bug is linked to the test issue. One key reason I prefer this approach is that it allows the dev team to declare when they are done and can 'release to QA' a feature/change.
If you do decide that passing off ownership of an issue is the way your team wants to go here are my thoughts:
hope that helps
