Issue status

Issues can be classified as New, Open, In Progress, Noise, Reopened, Passed, and Fixed. Issues classified Open, In Progress and Reopened appear in the Issues grid of an app.

Table 1. Issue status values
Class Description
New All issues, including those issues that are imported from 3rd party scanners, are marked as new by default when they are not yet triaged.
Open You classify an issue as Open during triage to indicate that you determined that it is a problem that must be addressed. Open issues remain open indefinitely until you change their status.
In Progress You classify an issue as In Progress to indicate that you determined that it is a problem that must be addressed. Issues that are marked In Progress remain so until you change their status.
Fixed You classify an issue as Fixed to indicate that its issues were addressed. Issues marked Fixed should not be found again. If they are found again, their status is automatically changed to Reopened.
Noise and Passed You classify an issue as Noise or Passed to indicate that the issue is not relevant and should no longer be considered an issue.Noise is often used for false positive results.Passed is typically used when a subject matter expert determined that the issue, though present on the site, does not constitute a problem in the context of the current report. For example, the status can be useful when you are evaluating accessibility guidelines or regulations, to avoid losing focus on the relevant issues.
Reopened Issues are automatically classified Reopened when they were previously Fixed but occur again.
