About this report

The Program Quality report displays the overall progress of the selected PI at the quality level, providing a status of defects and test cases per epic, feature, and story. Each epic with open defects associated is color-coded according to the defect priority and count.

Clicking any of the numbers opens the defect grid filtered for the story in question.

  4. Color coding of a work item = Color of defect priority by a number of defects.
  5. Healthy epics/stand-alone features = Epics/stand-alone features that have no defects.
  6. Unhealthy epics/stand-alone features = Epics/stand-alone features that have open defects.
  7. Stand-alone features = Features that are not assigned to any epics.
  8. Stories not assigned to a feature = Stories without any parent features.
  9. Program totals = Total number of all open defects in a program.
