Matching Defects
Matching defects enables you to eliminate duplicate or similar defects in
your project. Each time you add a new defect, TestDirector stores lists of
keywords from the Summary and Description fields. When you search for
similar defects, keywords in these fields are matched against other defects.
Note that keywords are more than two characters, and letter case does not
affect your results. TestDirector ignores the following: articles (a, an, the);
coordinate conjunctions (and, but, for, nor, or); boolean operators (and, or,
not, if, or then); and wildcards (?, *, [ ]).
In the following exercise, you will match defects by comparing a selected
defect with all other existing defects in the TestDirector_Demo project.
