Bugzilla

Buzilla is easy to use and provides basic functionality to use as a bug tracking tool. If big size attachments are allowed it would have been great. Also with Bugzilla home->Test management area is improved by allowing multiple sections it would be awesome!

Pros

Bugzilla

  • Open source! No license fee involved, no limit to the number of licenses.
  • Easy to install and maintain. Installation is very easy and hardly needs any maintenance efforts, except when migrating from one version to other. Each project can have its own group of users.
  • Includes all the core features/fields that are needed to log a software bug/issue.
  • Multiple attachments are possible, supports various formats.
  • Good for reporting. Filtering mechanism lets you query bugs by various parameters.

Cons

Bugzilla

  • There should be some sort of association of the multiple affected test cases from the bug which I cannot see.
  • There should be a place for a regression test suite in Bugzilla so that any bug found after every regression suite execution can be termed as regression testing failure result.
  • Documentation is limited to Bugs instead it should more of project-focused and display the health of a project with the bugs being found or resolved.
  • It cannot be part of Agile methodologies as no sprint association can happen.

For future projects I will look at something that is hosted in the cloud that I don't have to manage. I would also like something that has a more modern feel to allow my customers to use it as well as my employees.

This is a pretty straightforward system. You put in the bug details, a ticket is created, the team is notified. The user interface reflects this very simple and straightforward flow. It's certainly much easier than trying to track bugs with using Excel and email.

Since it is open source, it doesn't have customer service. However, the amount of information on forums is vast. If you can wade through it, you'll get what you need

Implementation was pretty simple. Particularly because the product cannot be customized so there is not much to do apart from getting it up and running.

Alternatives Considered

Bugzilla

Compared to other tools, Bugzilla is an affordable bug tracking tool that can be used for logging defects. It's a good, nice and reliable tool, which can be used initially for logging defects. Also, the list and status of the defects can be obtained easily by filtering/querying the fields. The report (along with graph) provides more detailed information about the defects of a project thus helping the management to know about the product quality.

Return on Investment

Bugzilla

  • Unification of toolset (one tool for managing software development defects and customer escalations)
  • User appreciation for ease of use in finding interrelated issues amongst different product areas
  • Users continue to express how ugly Bugzilla is, and while skins are readily available, none give a really polished feel to the system.
