When working on projects, you get bugs or new feature requests. You need a place to store all of them. GitLab has an amazing and easy way to do this; it's called the issue tracker. In this recipe, we will take a look at how you can create these issues in the issue tracker.
With the issue tracker, you can assign issues to team members and follow the path of a bug from it being reported to it being solved. When you work in a team, it's very useful to know who is working on what so that you don't work on the same thing without knowing. Here, the assignment of issues comes in. When you start working on an issue, or when you create the issue and already know who is going to work on it, you can assign the issue to that person.
You need to have one project in your GitLab server; I'll be using the
super-git project that we created in a previous chapter.
