There are two different types of scenarios with examples of High Severity with Low Priority & Low Severity with High Priority Bug occurs while delivering the build to the client.
Whenever we are planning to deliver the build to the client, we will deliver it in the form of phases.
Low Severity and High Priority Bug:
- The bugs which are related to the current delivery will be converted to the High Priority irrespective to the Severity, even if it is Medium Severity bug will be converted to the P1 Priority Bug.
High Severity and Low Priority Bug:
- The bugs which are not the part of current delivery will be converted to Low Priority irrespective of the Severity, even if it is a Blocker bug will be converted to Low Priority P4.
For example, we have two bugs as part of delivery in phases
- Medium Bug, 2. Blocker Bug
We are delivering the Medium Bug in phase 1 and Blocker Bug in phase 2.
So according to the condition, Development Lead will change the Medium Priority of Bug to High Priority of Bug and Blocker Priority of Bug to Low Priority of Bug.
