How to Prioritize

The Project Management Committee has established guidelines for using the priority field in the SF bug tracker. This was discussed in the PMC meeting of 03/06/2007, the notes are here: CC_Meeting_Full_20070306

If you are filling out a report, you can assign priority and group according to the following guidelines:


  • Priority 9 - system stopper - data corruption without workaround
  • Priority 7 - security issues
  • Priority 5 - not prioritized
  • Priority 3 - problems with workarounds - performance problems
  • Priority 1 - presentation problems


It's very important also to assign the group for the bug:

  • Beta - if you're reporting a bug over a beta functionality
  • Core - if you're reporting a bug over a core functionality
  • Module specific - if you're reporting affecting just a specific module (not core)
  • Report - if you're reporting problems of presentation or reports


From time to time, the bugs will be triaged to re-prioritize them according to these standards.

Priority and group are important, because we will not announce a stable release while there are known priority 9 bugs on core.
