Google is now going to upgrade its Android Open Source Project (AOSP) issue tracking system to Issue Tracker. As of now, the company is using this tool internally to track bugs and feature requests while building products. With the introduction of Issue Tracker, Google wants to provide better collaboration between its developers and product teams.
Issue Tracker shows only the developer’s specific issues. Anytime developers can change the setting to show a hotlist of their choice, bookmark group, or a saved search. As mentioned in Android official blog, “Starting today, all issues formerly at code.google.com/p/android/issues will migrate to Issue Tracker under the Android Public Tracker component.”
Google has already started using Issue Tracker to collect feedback on the O Developer Preview. The company has advised developers to check out Life of a bug because the mapping is not similar as it was in code.google.com.
If a developer opens a code.google.com issue link, he/she will be redirected to the new system. Issue Tracker will contain all the issues reported earlier in code.google.com. Android Public Tracker component will have all the reported Android issues. Developers can search for some specific categories of issues, such as Tools and Support Libraries by searching for specific components.
Along with this, to report any issue, developers can check from the issues list whether it has been already reported or not. However, developers can create new issues by just clicking on “Create Issue” and search for the appropriate component.
