I had my PSD examen but i have some doubt about a question related to documentation. To be honest i found the question unclear. I don't remember the specific question but it was about which criteria is used to decide if something should be documented every sprint.
One of the answer is "if it's part of the DOD".
According to me this answer is correct. If it's in the DOD, it means the team agrees documentations is necessary.
What do you think ?

Thanks

I would agree that documentation should be a part of the definition of done - ideally it should state the level of documentation as well to avoid confusion/questions once the sprint is complete. As a scrum master you should encourage the team to agree to as much detail as possible in the sprint planning meeting as possible.

I'd agree, though of course it's also possible for the provision of specific documentation to be asserted in acceptance criteria.

In that case, the SM and PO cannot require what should be documented? Is it a good idea to documented the software tools which are used during Sprint?
