I am looking for a name for the field that will hold the following values:

  • Regression
  • Progression
  • Stress

The field reflects if the defect is a Regression defect or Progression defect and so on. In our defect management, we already use 'Type', so would be happy to get any other suggestions.

Thanks !

  • Defect / Bug category
  • Defect / Bug type
  • Defect / Bug discovered by

Instead of using "type", I recommend to use a longer and more descriptive term. "Type" itself is too ambiguous.

Use the field name "Test Type".

As field reflects the defect type, I think you should name it "Defect Type". It would look like as;

Defect Type


Regression
Progression
Stress

Type is not an option as already used and also too generic.
