Issue Tracker Now Makes Newly Logged Issues Public By Default



BlackBerry® developers, you can now quickly locate and vote on issues logged by your peers. We have modified the configuration of Issue Tracker so that newly logged issues are by default visible to all other Issue Tracker users. You’ll be informed about this when creating a new issue as shown above.

To keep an issue private you can click on the “Contains Confidential Info” checkbox when creating or modifying an issue. This will prevent other users from seeing your issue (although of course the administrators at Research In Motion® (RIM®) will still be able to see your issue and to act on it).

The default setting of the public/private permission when creating new issues is configurable in your Issue Tracker profile. You can modify it by clicking on the link shown when creating a new issue (screenshot above) or by modifying the setting in your user profile. Here is how you can switch back to the previous configuration where issues you log are kept private by changing the setting in your profile:

1. Log into Issue Tracker.

2. Click on the arrow beside your username and choose Profile.

3. Click on the “Configure Reporter Issue Preferences” link on the bottom left corner of the page.

4. Change “Public Visibility by Default” to “No” and click on “Update”.

New issues you create will now be set to private by default.
