Assigning Submission Statuses

A submission status represents the current state of a submission at a particular time. You can assign a submission status to move a submission through the program's workflow.

When a researcher submits a submission, its status will always be "New." After you review the submission and determine its validity, you can change the submission status to one that reflects its state more accurately.

Status Options

There are three categories of statuses: open, accepted, and rejected. Within each category are the following statuses:

Open

  • New: A submission that has not been reviewed or assigned a status.
  • Triaged: A submission that may be valid, but needs to be reviewed again and validated.

Accepted

  • Unresolved: A valid submission that needs to be fixed. Typically, you should reward a submission at this point in the process.
  • Resolved: A valid submission that has been fixed.
  • Duplicate: A valid submission that is a duplicate of another submission.

Rejected

  • Out of Scope: A submission you reject because it is not in scope with the criteria outlined in the bounty program.
  • Not Reproducible: A submission you reject because you cannot reproduce it based on the information you have.
  • Won't Fix: A submission that you reject because it is seen as an accepted business risk, does not impact your organization, or users of your product.
  • Not Applicable: A submission that you reject because it does not apply to your application.

Changing Submission Status

To change a submission's status, go to the Submissions Page and select the submission you want to update.

Duplicate Issues

If you mark a submission as a duplicate, you must specify the submission that it duplicates. It can be a duplicate of a submission you have received as part of your bug bounty program or a duplicate of an issue tracked outside of Bugcrowd.
