In our current bug traking software we have a fairly traditional work flow. Bugs are assigned to devs for fixing and in a seperate field to testers for validating. I am wondering what the best way to implement this is in JIRA. There is a assignee field which I guess can be used to assigne to different people at different points in the bug lifecycle... I am assuming I can still determine who has worked on a bug... is that true? OR should I create a new field to list testers seperately.
I guess a follow on question is can you limit who can be an assignee at different points in teh lifecycle such that when marked for fixing only Devs names are avaialable or when marked for validation only testers names appear.
we have a project role "developers" and another role "testers" and control the visibility of the steps with workflow conditions. So some steps can only be seen by testers, others only by developers.
In the issue history, you can always see, which developer fixed a bug, even it is now assigned to a tester for validating it. You don't need a second field.
