Link bugs and create dependencies to track and close bugs. You can associate bugs based on a criterion, restrict bug closure, set dependencies, duplicate and clone bugs. And you can link bugs using the default link types such as Blocks, Depends, e.t.c or you can create your own link type.
Linking bugs in Zoho BugTracker allows you to:
In Projects, select the required project, and click Bugs. Click Bug Settings from the displayed option and in Customization, choose Link Bugs.
|Link Name ||Description|
|Blocks||Indicates that you cannot close a blocked bug without closing the bug that is blocking it. This clause is applicable only for bugs that are linked with the link type as blocks. |
Example: If bug A is linked with bug B using 'blocks' association, then bug A must be closed before bug B is closed.
|Depends on||Indicates that you cannot close a dependent bug without closing the bug that it depends on. This clause is applicable only for bugs that are linked with the link type as depends on. |
Example: If bug A is linked with bug B, using 'depends' association, then bug B must be closed before bug A is closed.
|Is related to||Indicates that you can associate bugs that are related based on some criteria. It does not restrict the closing of any bugs.|
|Is duplicate of||Indicates that you can associate one or more bugs logged for the same problem as duplicates. However, closing one bug does not close its duplicates.|
Is clone of
|Indicates that you can clone and associate bugs. |
Example: If you create bug B by cloning bug A, then bug B is associated as a clone of bug A.
