Awarding bounties on bug reports
Once you have acknowledged the report as a valid finding, you can now award it a bug bounty. Other programs wait until the bug report is resolved but most of the programs prefer to award a bug bounty once the finding has been confirmed as valid.
To award a bounty, kindly follow the guide below:
- Then select the "Change status" tab and pick the Accepted status. (Please note that changing the status to Accepted is required to award a bounty to a bug report)
- Press the Change status button to display the message and to show the Set award tab.
- Next step is to select the "Set award" tab above the comment box and choose an action on the left side.
- Press the Set award button to award the bounty to researcher.
