What is an issue tracker app?

An issue tracker application is a web or mobile application used to track bugs, defects, feature requests, and other issues in software development projects. Issue tracker apps are often used by development teams to assign tasks to team members and manage the status of each task.

Issue tracker apps are similar to project management apps, with the added ability to act as a dashboard for issues and updates. JIRA is an example of an issue tracker app.

How to successfully grow your issue tracker application

Issue trackers can drive growth by making their in-app experience more convenient for users. In order to compete, issue trackers should clearly differentiate themselves from other similar apps by focusing on a specific niche.

Risks and challenges of building a issue tracker application

An issue tracker faces risks related to the manipulation of data by bad actors, the inappropriate use of sensitive or proprietary information, and the violation of state or federal law. It is important for issue trackers to have a mechanism for authenticating user identities, including both users and reviewers. It is also important for issue trackers to provide strong mechanisms for deleting sensitive information when necessary. Depending on your location, you may also want to consider whether the issue tracker itself needs to be registered as an independent vendor with federal or state government agencies.
