It is only created for those issues that need to be handled formally. The report is initially created when capturing the issue, and updated both after the issue has been examined and when proposals are identified for issue resolution. The Issue Report is later amended further in order to record what option was decided upon, and finally updated when the implementation has been verified and the issue is closed.
