A test case, in software engineering, is a set of conditions or variables under which a tester will determine whether an application, software system or one of its features is working as it was originally established for it to do. The mechanism for determining whether a software program or system has passed or failed such a test is known as a test oracle.

In the Bug Tracking the terms “Priority” and “Severity” are used to share the importance of a bug among the team and to fix it accordingly.

Priority means how fast it has to be fixed. Normally talking about this, “High Severity” bug are marked as “High Priority” bugs & it’s should be resolved as early as possible, but this case is not all the time. There can be different exceptions to this rule and depending on the nature of the application it can be change from company to company. Let’s take a example to the Priority: e.g. To deal with all issues present what issues to be consider on first based on its urgency or importance on application under test. Adding this field in while reporting bug will help analyzing the Bug Report.
