You can create a defect suite to schedule a collection of defects in a sprint or program increment. A defect suite is used for tracking related defects as a group and not separately one by one.

Create defect suites from the defect suites page:

If you’re using the new navigation:

  1. Select Teams in the top navigation bar and select the team you want to view information about.
  2. On the sidebar, select More items in the list of page options.
  3. Select Defect suites; the defect suites page displays.

If you’re using the old navigation:

  1. Select Team from the left Nav menu.
  2. Under the Quality section of the Nav menu, select Defect Suites.

To add a defect suite:

  1. On the defect suites page, select the Add Defect Suites button in the upper-right.
  2. Type the suite’s title and its description in the corresponding fields.
  3. Select the suite’s state and leave comments if any.
  4. Select a program, program increment, and sprint the defect suite belongs to from the corresponding drop-down menus.
  5. The remaining fields are optional. Enter values for the following fields as needed:
  • Owner: The owner of the defect suite.
  • Ready: The state of completeness of the defect suite.
  • Blocked: Shows if the defect suite has any issues and is blocked.
  • Reason: The reason for creating this defect suite (for example, the suite was created to manage critical defects for sprint A of program increment A).
  • Estimate: Set the plan, task, and to-do estimates for completing the defect suite.
  1. Click Save & Close.

Next, you need to add defects to a defect suite. You can do this from the defects page for each individual defect (from the Suite box on the defect slide-out panel).
