Modern software systems often are structured as distributed component-based architectures, such as microservice architectures. However, such systems come with significant challenges in cross-component issue management. Each component usually manages its issues in an independent issue management system, and conventional issue management systems only have a project-specific scope. Therefore, issues that affect multiple components or propagate across various components cannot be displayed. Furthermore, issues cannot be linked semantically to issues in other components. Instead, emergency solutions, such as a URL to the other issue, must be used. This makes it challenging to recognize cross-component dependency information. This paper presents Gropius, a tool for integrated management of cross-component issues. Gropius graphically models such cross-component issues together with the system architecture in a notation similar to a UML component diagram. Additionally, other research and industry efforts to manage such issues are discussed and compared to Gropius.
