When to use the Bug tracking?

When I am creating a new project, there are three options "Kanban", "Scrum" and "Bug tracking" for me.

And I'm confused by the "Bug tracking" options as I usually create "Bug" issues in the scrum. Why do I need to create a new project for bugs? Is there any benefit to having it?

Hi @Oliver CHIU and welcome to the community!

You can consider these templates as a quick start guide for newcomers. These templates consists mostly of specific issue issue types, workflows, fields, screen, permissions and notifications. You can read more here https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/templates/bug-tracking and here https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/features/bug-tracking

You don't need to create a new project to keep track of your bugs. Whatever works for you and your team, based on the workflows, fields, schemes you all have decided to use.

Hi @Oliver CHIU ,

There are no many differences. Bug tracking has a different workflow by default (includes 'in review' status) and the issue types 'improvement' and 'new feature'. You can continue using Scrum if that works for you.
