Setting Submission Priorities

Submission priorities and priority assignment

A submission priority identifies the importance of a submission in relation to other submissions. You can set a priority to communicate to your team the severity of the issue uncovered in the submission and establish how urgently the issue needs to be resolved.

Crowdcontrol offers five priority levels that you can assign to submissions. It's up to you to decide what each priority means and how you want to use it.

Here are the priority levels that you can assign to a submission:

  • P1 Critical: The issue identified in the submission has the highest priority and should be assigned to major blockers. Typically, submissions with a P1 priority cause the application to be unusable and requires immediate attention.
  • P2 Severe: This issue identified in the submission is not critical but significantly impacts the application.
  • P3 Moderate: The submission does not present a critical or severe issue, but does uncover a flaw in the application that needs to be fixed.
  • P4 Low: This submission is the lowest priority and represents a minor issue.
  • P5 Informational: This submission is an informational finding and accepted as a non-rewardable submission.

Opt-In Program: P5 Informational Findings

P5 Informational submissions will automatically be transitioned to a 'Won't Fix' status unless you opt-in to have specified findings triaged into your accepted submission workflow - learn more here.
