    Thumbs up How many of testers have done it?

    Hi friends,

    Really true question.

    How many of you have written the step to reproduce a bug which you got from the server? I mean when open user use a website and get some server error, server make a log of this error and send a mail to admin, if this mail is forwarded to you, can you write the step? and how many of you have done it?

    If the question is not clear to any of you, you may ask to me.

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    Ya recently i have reported a bug.
    Opera has released a web browser for mobile phone.
    Version 4.1 which is still in beta stage.
    They have claimed that using new version of webbrowsed we can attach files from mobile phone when i tried it .it has a bug.
    Whenever i attached a file of any type,instead of original file the web browsed is attaching html file of 1 kb.
    To report any bug they has give option for bug reporting.
    I have reported this bug using this bug reporting tool.

    Friend,

    What so ever you have replied, comes user beta testing when user reports the bugs.
    My question was for professional testers when they are working on a web project, user get the server error, but don't report it.

    In this case also, we get a server mail, but we have no steps to reproduce, we have to write them.

    As per my knowledge, rarely any tester do this, that's what i want to confirm, because I am doing it.

    I am not getting you harri.

    I have explained the answer in my question it self, now it's like a survey question, that how many testers are doing it, or have done it?

    Hi,

    If i understood you correctly, you are referring to the logs which usually are stored somewhere in the logs directory of your server.
    Basicaaly the steps to reproduce will not be present in the log file, but you can always get the root cause of the failure with the help og these log files.
    Hence attaching these log reports iwith your bug report will be of lots of help.

    Thanks

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    nice answer.

    But only log file is not sufficient to reproduce the bug. It is just like a help, but not a proper solution. That's why tester needs to write step.

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    This procedure of writing TCs out of the mails from the server is a common process as far as I know. I have done that quite a few times. Mostly such TCs were categorized as Regression tests.

    But I have a question. I want to understand from jainbrijesh, what is this survey aiming at.

    Lack of WILL POWER has caused more failure than
    lack of INTELLIGENCE or ABILITY.

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    Hi sutnarcha,

    This survey aims only that is it comes under testing to write test cases from server log/mails or not.

    I think it is not the testing part, but we can generally adds it in testing. I just want to see whether it is common practice or in some companies only.

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    Hi Brijesh Jain,
    Its totally depends on what type of testing you are doing. If you are working on Functional Testing you should always concentrate on Application Functional Flow. I mean you should see how end-user's can complete one end-to-end transaction.

    But it is really required one who are working on System testing ( early testing before depolyed into FAT environments ). System testing test cases should cover end-to-end as well as each service events behaviour.

    So it is really useful if someone follow Brijesh Jain's ideas to incorporate the steps in test cases.

    Please someone correct If I am wrong.

    Thanks

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    Hi all,

    It is very important for a tester to reproduce a bug, for that tester need to write all the steps along with all the settings which will helpful to the devlapor to fix, ex. if one is doing the functional testings it is better he should provied his test procedure steps and observation and all.prm file.

    Hi all have written the step to reproduce a bug which you got from the server? Its hard to replicate how ever depends on the particular functionality. So we take screen shots and do a regression and in the bug tracking tool assigned it as not replicable.

    Re: How many of testers have done it?

    hi all,
    i'm not able to understand the question fully.
    can some one help me out?
    i will give mycomments below
    In my Exp i got several times "Server Error " and i logged a bug for the same
    In my opinion nobody can't give the Exact repro steps for this because it is consistent and you may get in different scenarios.
    Even you get mail from admin regarding the log details also you may not be able to identify the root cause for that in manty cases.
    i feel For developers also its challenging thing some times to find the root cause
    Can some one validate my ans and correct me if any thing wrong?
