4 Ways to Find the One Hundred Percent Bug

During the software testing process, testers find bugs and report them to the bug tracking system from where they are redirected to the developers’ consideration. But not all tickets reported to the bug tracker are real defects.

In fact, sometimes there are errors which testers consider to be bugs, and nevertheless the developers reject and do not fix them. This is because it is not always possible to immediately determine whether it is a mistake which is necessary to correct.

Every tester seeks to detect all possible errors in the program to make its quality of one hundred percent. For this reason, he or she casts doubt on everything, and reports everything, even a little controversial moments to the bug tracker. Imagine the surprise when one after the other tickets are returned back from the developers with the “Invalid bug” label.

To decrease such cases, the tester is certainly obliged to improve skills in a variety of testing types – functional testing, localization testing, usability testing, multi-platform testing and so on. But in addition to improving professional skills, the tester should pay attention to some specific moments.

How to Verify the Validity of Bug?

  1. The correctness of passing the test case – during manual testing tester strictly follows the steps to reproduce any function, does not deviate from the plan and is not trying to invent and implement new strategies for user behavior in the system.
  2. The clarity and specificity in coding – during automated testing the user’s behavior is programmed with clearly specified action, without a lot of extra “ifs” which are not required.
  3. The identity that build or additional technical settings for the build are properly installed and running.
  4. The answer to the question “Does the program work not properly, or does it work with some (minor) differences from our expectations?”.
