Tags and Prefixes


Each new Story created shall be marked with Tags. We are using Tags to:

  • Show what kind of a Story it is - a Bug, a Feature, etc...
  • Show what release the Story is targeted to: stx.2018.08, stx.2018.11, etc... See the TBD section for more info on our Release plans
  • Show which sub-project of Starling is responsible for completing the Story. See the TBD section for more info on the project's sub-projects

To help us all keep things straight and to enable us to share queries and searches please follow these rules:

  • All newly created Stories shall be tagged as described here
  • All newly newly created Stories shall be tagged with stx.new so we know that the story needs to be reviewed and assigned to a release.

This page is under construction.

To make it easier to visually identify categories of work and to search on them, you can optionally add a prefix to the description for a Story. The following prefixes are defined:

    • [Enhancement]: An improvement or enhancement to the functionality of StartingX; typically smaller scope items
    • [Build]: Build tools, environment, repo organization, etc
    • [Process]: Process and project related work items
    • [Test]: Test/Validation related work items
    • [Upstreaming]: Work items that need to be pushed in the core openstack projects or other 3rd party repo's
    • [Help]: Request for assistance, questions
Prefix Description
[Bug] A problem which impairs or prevents the functionality of StarlingX
[Feature] For new features and enhancements
[Doc] For documentation work items
[Security] For security issues e.g. CVE reports


A new defect for the Security Sub-project would be tagged as: stx.new, stx stx.bug, stx.security. The description can optionally contain "[BUG][Security]".

A new feature for the TBD Sub-project should be tagged as: stx.feature stx.TBD. The description can optionally contain [Feature][TBD].

Note that each Tag needs to be entered separately in the web UI.
