My company has had at least six instances where defect suites are inadvertently being deleted in Rally. This tends to happen most frequently when Rally users try to remove a defect from a defect suite.

To replicate. 1. Open a specific defect. 2. Click on Defect Suites. 3. Click on the setting wheel for the defect suite to be removed. Result: two options are available at the bottom of the settings wheel: (a) Remove and (b) Delete. Issue: Team members will inadvertently hit Delete thinking they are deleting the defect from the defect suite; however, they actually delete the Defect Suite instead.

Possible Recommendations to consider:

- Please remove the "Delete" option when in an open defect. It should not be available in this setting due to the confusion it causes users.

- Change the "Remove" label to "Remove defect from defect suite"

- Make it so only the person who created the defect suit has the ability to delete the defect suite from Rally.
