  • Capability to query bugs on multiple criteria and export it to csv for triages.
  • Simple and intuitive user experience and clearly planned defect life cycle
  • There are other features like assigning the defect to pull request, clearly explaining defect by attaching screenshots, detailed description etc
  • If you are using other IBM tools for requirements documentation, this tool integrates very well
  • Lot of defect management tools are out there and are free to use
  • In agile world, teams use Jira or other tools and they have the defect tracking capability builtin
  • Don't really see the need to use this tool in agile world

  • Effective change management, workflow management.
  • Bug tracking.
  • Integrates with the IBM versioning tool for version management.
  • Integrates with IBM rational testcase for achieving an overall test management.
  • Creating reports on the task status for managing deadlines and deliverables.
  • Does not provide complete test management like HP QC. Although it can be easily integrated with IBM's rational test case manager and versioning tools.
  • UI look and feel is good but can be improved in terms of usability.

  • We can create a project in this document and attach all the documentation to get signatures from various team members. This is really helpful for tracking purposes.
  • We can create a Project Change Request and get it approved.
  • We can log defects of documents and get it resolved from the document owner.
  • If you use theweb version, then it's really not good idea to use for sending emails through the tool, as it won't give you the chance to format your email, or modify the receivers list.
  • Most of the times people try to sign the WPI record instead of acknowledge it. So the error message should explain to them why they can not sign. People simply gets confused.

  • IBM Rational ClearQuest records and workflow are highly customizable. As a result, ClearQuest implementations can be tailored to any organization's methodologies.
  • IBM Rational ClearQuest Integration with IBM Rational ClearCase provides traceability between work records and source code changes, expanding the SDLC scope of the toolset.
  • Greater and more complex customization requires more administration. Prepare to devote full time resources to maintaining and administering IBM Rational ClearQuest. The greater the customizations and if integrated with ClearCase, the more maintenance will be required.
  • At my previous company, our organization's contract with IBM lapsed and they didn't offer "a-la-carte" support. We couldn't obtain support even though we were willing to pay for it.
