Project – The standard defect type.
Flaky – Tests which fail due to defects of type flaky will not break the build unless specified
Invalid Test – Indicates that the test is or was invalid when the test failed.
Outside Scope – Select this defect type when the failure is a consequence of another test failure, i.e. if Login breaks and your Login tests fail and create a defect and all your other tests fail and create a defect which is secondary then this would defect would be marked as Outside Scope, essentially saying that we don’t want to prioritize this defect as it is a corresponding failure to the real defect.
