Benefits of a bug diary

By keeping a personal bug diary, test engineers can better reproduce scenarios when testing an application.

Test engineers should maintain a personal bug diary and notes to gather the bugs that they come across during testing in their career. This will help in reproducing such scenario's during testing an application.

What to include in each entry:

  • Sl No.
  • Month & year
  • Type of product
  • Bug description
  • Idea that helped me/someone find this bug
  • Why did I feel happy finding this bug? / Why did I miss this bug?
  • What I learned from this bug
