How do you deal with an inconsistent defect?

Inconsistency defect is nothing but the defect which is not stable, a bug which is not reproducible while retesting i.e. the defect is valid but it’s not reproducible always. For example, observing an issue whole day and at the end of the day when you reported that defect, you find it’s no more reproducible.

Here are the steps to reproduce defect

  1. Include exact data used during testing for easy reference
  2. The steps have to be in the exact order
  3. Mention pre-requisites when applicable
  4. Always recheck your steps to reproduce on a new system, clearing all cookies and cache memory
