Documenting an agile defect


       Shirly Ronen-Harel
           Oct 2010
What is an agile
level of defect
documentation?
Moving fast means also
to be able to document
 defects to a level of
 “just enough” and not
        to much.
The level documentation
  of defects in an agile
environment changes for
   deferent types and
 process stages related
        defects.
Defects management is one
of Highly important process
 to manage efficiently and
        effectively.
Defects management is a
costly process : documenting
  , reproducing , managing,
       fixing , closing.
Managing and resolving
defects should be done in a
timely and efficient manner.
Outstanding defects can hold
       up the release of
 functionality to the business.
Defect should be related
  to functionality – not
       to a module.
Quality in : Finding ,fixing
and testing Defects Early
         is a must.
deferent agile defects phases


Each phase holds a deferent
agile attention to the defect
        documentation
Defect detected during peering , developer & tester.

Defect detected while continuously merging code.

Defect detected during acceptance tests of a user
    story/epic/process/functionality.

Defect detected during regression tests.

Defects detected during customer lab testing.

Customer defect – from customer production.
Inherent defects.

And more
• Keep it simple – we don't have to document
  all defects at the same level of details for
  all deferent phases of detection.
• It depends on the value the documentation
  holds against the effort of documenting it.
Tips
 The far we move from the
  developer who fix the bug
    (or reproduce it), the
  more detailed the defect
   documentation should be
  and the procedure should
       be more official.
The distance between development
   operations to those who supply the
      defects to fix is curtail since
  communication barriers hold expensive
             waste potential

For example : tester located in an off shore team
  should send detailed bugs with the most relevant
   details to the group of developers. The flow of
  communication may hold a time/ distance gap that
    may delay the bug fix, reproduction on the bug
               or even understanding it.
Other needs that defines the level
of documentation of a defect

Just enough documentation
 level for the following.
    each level require a
  procedure of deferent
  documentation details.
Defect that we can learn from in the future , will be
document to the level of learning value only.

Defect to add to automated tests, will be documented with
the relevant information.

Non reproducible defects , will be documented for future
use.

Defects to move to future versions should be highly
document to the level of ease of reproduction.

Peering defects/ check-in defects – may not even be
documented in case they are fixed on the spot.
Less detailed


      •Check-in defects                  •Almost nothing – not cost
      •Detected during tester –          effective
      developer Peering.
      •Fixed on the spot
      •Minor fixed on the spot


Co-located                                                        Distributed
teams                                                             teams
    •High priority (?)                    •Off shore testing. Detailed
    •Not fixed this                       issues and bugs
    iteration/release
                                          •Faster support operations
    •Needs further
                                          •Customer data defects
    testing/investigation
    •Regression                           •Customer regression
    •Manual Bugs to add for               production bug related to 3rd
    automated testing                     level support
    •Not fixed toady          Detailed
Decide for each type of defect
        the agile level of
          documentation
• For example : since we don’t always have the
  opportunity to talk to the defect reporter when we
  want to fix the defect ,defects coming from
  customer site , may need to hold configuration
  details, customer data and scenario as a must.
• For example : defects related to an acceptance
  tests may hold only a clear title to them since the
  entire tests detailed is automated or already
  documented into the user story acceptance.
Tractability
• Functional Defects
• are Always traced to a user story – functionality
   – A defect is a user story child.
   – It is born from a task testing or user story acceptance, regression,
     sanity testing
• Or epic
• Not to a module

• Regression defects
   – Detected at customer site or not related to a current open user
     story
   – Should be added to the sprint/ product backlog and prioritized as
     part of a backlog item.
Therefore
Big defects list is out!
Functional backlog progress
    and quality view – is IN!
• The focus is on the release
  functionality quality . defects are only a
  small part of it.
Big bug meeting are out, short
   “just on time“ functional
   health discussions are IN.
Defect view is not relevant
 Two new views becomes more relevant :
 backlog view & functional user stories
                  view.

• Release view drill to functional status –
  progress , coverage, bugs.
• Backlog view – change management for the
  entire release : functional and bugs.

Shirly Ronen - Documenting an agile defect

  • 1. Documenting an agile defect Shirly Ronen-Harel Oct 2010
  • 2. What is an agile level of defect documentation?
  • 3. Moving fast means also to be able to document defects to a level of “just enough” and not to much.
  • 4. The level documentation of defects in an agile environment changes for deferent types and process stages related defects.
  • 5. Defects management is one of Highly important process to manage efficiently and effectively.
  • 6. Defects management is a costly process : documenting , reproducing , managing, fixing , closing.
  • 7. Managing and resolving defects should be done in a timely and efficient manner.
  • 8. Outstanding defects can hold up the release of functionality to the business.
  • 9. Defect should be related to functionality – not to a module.
  • 10. Quality in : Finding ,fixing and testing Defects Early is a must.
  • 11. deferent agile defects phases Each phase holds a deferent agile attention to the defect documentation
  • 12. Defect detected during peering , developer & tester. Defect detected while continuously merging code. Defect detected during acceptance tests of a user story/epic/process/functionality. Defect detected during regression tests. Defects detected during customer lab testing. Customer defect – from customer production. Inherent defects. And more
  • 13. • Keep it simple – we don't have to document all defects at the same level of details for all deferent phases of detection. • It depends on the value the documentation holds against the effort of documenting it.
  • 14. Tips The far we move from the developer who fix the bug (or reproduce it), the more detailed the defect documentation should be and the procedure should be more official.
  • 15. The distance between development operations to those who supply the defects to fix is curtail since communication barriers hold expensive waste potential For example : tester located in an off shore team should send detailed bugs with the most relevant details to the group of developers. The flow of communication may hold a time/ distance gap that may delay the bug fix, reproduction on the bug or even understanding it.
  • 16. Other needs that defines the level of documentation of a defect Just enough documentation level for the following. each level require a procedure of deferent documentation details.
  • 17. Defect that we can learn from in the future , will be document to the level of learning value only. Defect to add to automated tests, will be documented with the relevant information. Non reproducible defects , will be documented for future use. Defects to move to future versions should be highly document to the level of ease of reproduction. Peering defects/ check-in defects – may not even be documented in case they are fixed on the spot.
  • 18. Less detailed •Check-in defects •Almost nothing – not cost •Detected during tester – effective developer Peering. •Fixed on the spot •Minor fixed on the spot Co-located Distributed teams teams •High priority (?) •Off shore testing. Detailed •Not fixed this issues and bugs iteration/release •Faster support operations •Needs further •Customer data defects testing/investigation •Regression •Customer regression •Manual Bugs to add for production bug related to 3rd automated testing level support •Not fixed toady Detailed
  • 19. Decide for each type of defect the agile level of documentation • For example : since we don’t always have the opportunity to talk to the defect reporter when we want to fix the defect ,defects coming from customer site , may need to hold configuration details, customer data and scenario as a must. • For example : defects related to an acceptance tests may hold only a clear title to them since the entire tests detailed is automated or already documented into the user story acceptance.
  • 20. Tractability • Functional Defects • are Always traced to a user story – functionality – A defect is a user story child. – It is born from a task testing or user story acceptance, regression, sanity testing • Or epic • Not to a module • Regression defects – Detected at customer site or not related to a current open user story – Should be added to the sprint/ product backlog and prioritized as part of a backlog item.
  • 22. Big defects list is out!
  • 23. Functional backlog progress and quality view – is IN! • The focus is on the release functionality quality . defects are only a small part of it.
  • 24. Big bug meeting are out, short “just on time“ functional health discussions are IN.
  • 25. Defect view is not relevant Two new views becomes more relevant : backlog view & functional user stories view. • Release view drill to functional status – progress , coverage, bugs. • Backlog view – change management for the entire release : functional and bugs.
  • 26. Epic In progress planed actual remaining User story task task task defect task
  • 27. Epic In progress planed actual remaining User story task task task defect task Epic planed User story done actual task defect task
  • 28. planed Epic actual remaining In progress planed actual remaining User story task task task defect task planed User story In progress actual remaining task task defect
