Attachments

For every bug, there is at least one attachment required to show where and how the issue occurs.

If the bug is a static issue, a screenshot should usually do the job.
If the bug is a dynamic issue, a screencast video is necessary.

General Information:

  • New attachments have to be created for any bug or reproduction
  • It is prohibited to copy attachments from other bugs reproductions
