Adding and Editing Issues

To add a new issue click the new issue from the menu. If you don't see this menu item either you are not logged into BugNET or you do not have the proper permissions to create new issues. Permissions are given via the project roles and permissions pages that an administrator will have to grant you.

The new issue screen will display all drop down lists as configured by the default properties page in the project administrator page and a full rich text editor to enter the description of the issue. The new issue screen also allows you to select a file attachment to upload to the issue during creation.

The only required field on the default issue screen is the title (unless there are mandatory custom fields configured for the project)
