how to track bug in jira/agile/greenhopper ?


1. sprint 1 - story 1, story 2, story 3. (3 stories existed in sprint backlog).

2. Estimatation of story include: analyze effort, development effort, QA effort, QA resolve effort.

3. sprint length is 2 weeks.

4. DOD (Defination of done) : story can be closed if only it passed through below tasks:

1. development,

2. QA

3. bug fixing (story's bug)

During sprint execution days -

story 1 development completed and its in QA.

Now, QA found 1 bug while doing testing of this story 1. so, QA linked that bug to story 1 as 'discovered while testing' the story and its related to that story.

So, now, how can i track such bugs (found while QA the story) within this sprint only ?

In green hopper, these bugs would be appear on agile board as these are the part of the story and these are the story bugs and as per DOD , story can't close till these bugs are resolved.

Except way:

there should not be a way by as below as these bugs are considering as a part of the sprint only even through not planned prior to start sprint.

1. there should not need to update the existing sprint to add these additional bugs.

should not estimate bugs (because, already estimation included in story estimated point). should not wait or carry forward to next sprint (it can carry forward through story only as it is part of story).

Any one please give there through how these bugs can be track in green hopper/jira.

can i see such bugs on agile board without doing any changes in sprint.

What about if you create the Bug as a subtask for the Story? This way you don't have to link it and it will automatically appear in your Sprint. You could also create a new subtask type for that.
