Bug management system requirements

A bug/defect/issue tracking system should:
  • Allow you to spend time fixing bugs, not tracking them.
  • Allow you to see the serious of bugs.
  • Allow you to see the reach/scope/extent of the bug.
  • Have the minimum number of compulsory fields (3? 0?) when recording a bug.
  • Only be used by the people whi will benefit from it's use.
  • Be appropriate to the size of project it is being used for.
  • Integrate with the version tracking system being used.
  • Provide useful statistics and reporting.
  • Be fast.
  • Be easy to use.
