Bugs Resolved

Bugs Resolved

Total count of issue type Bugs resolved in the selected time period. The definition of Bug is mapped to your underlying Issue tracking tool (Jira, Linear, ClickUp etc).

  • Jira - issue type = Bug
  • Clickup - issue type = Bug
  • Azure boards - issue type = Bug
  • Linear - every issue is considered as Task. There is no bug distinction as of now.


Computation of the metric

  1. Computed by counting the issues labeled as bugs that have transitioned to a "Resolved" or "Closed" status within a specified timeframe.
  2. Data is sourced from project management tools such as Jira, where bug statuses are tracked and we check for the issue category.

Dashboards where this metric is used

  1. Dev Metric Grid
  2. Effort Alignment

Use cases of this metric

  1. For each sprint the Bugs resolved are reported in the Project delivery overview dashboard which provides a way for teams to understand what is their contribution towards stories vs bugs.
  2. By tracking the total count of bugs resolved, teams can monitor their performance in addressing and resolving issues, enabling them to identify trends, patterns, and areas for improvement in the bug resolution process.
  3. Benchmarking the total count of bugs resolved over time enables teams to set goals for continuous improvement and track progress. It facilitates the implementation of strategies to enhance bug resolution processes, leading to more robust and reliable software products.
