Getting clover to use showUniqueCoverage in XML report

I want to have per-test coverage information included in the XML report produced by clover. As it stands, I have a custom report descriptor that looks like:

<project name="Clover Report" default="current">
 
    <clover-format id="clover.format" type="${type}" orderBy="${orderBy}" filter="${filter}"/>
    <clover-setup initString="${cloverdb}"/>
 
    <clover-columns id="clover.columns">
        <totalChildren/>
        <avgMethodComplexity/>
        <uncoveredElements format="raw"/>
        <totalPercentageCovered format="longbar"/>
    </clover-columns>
 
 
    <target name="historical">
        <clover-report>
            <current outfile="${output}"  summary="${summary}" >
                <format refid="clover.format"/>
                <testsources dir="${tests}"/>
                <columns refid="clover.columns"/>
            </current>
            <historical outfile="${historyout}" historydir="${history}">
                <format refid="clover.format"/>
                <columns refid="clover.columns"/>
            </historical>
        </clover-report>
    </target>
 
    <target name="current">
        <clover-report>
            <current outfile="${output}" title="${title}" summary="${summary}" showUniqueCoverage="true">
                <format refid="clover.format"/>
                <testsources dir="${tests}"/>
                <columns refid="clover.columns"/>
            </current>
        </clover-report>
    </target>
</project>

I build this with Maven:

mvn clean clover2:setup test clover2:clover

And it executes fine, but I do not see any per-test coverage information in the resulting XML. My POM looks like:

<plugin>
                <groupId>com.atlassian.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-clover2-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.1.12</version>
                <configuration>
                    <generatePdf>false</generatePdf>
                    <generateXml>true</generateXml>
                    <generateHtml>false</generateHtml>
                    <reportDescriptor>clover-report.xml</reportDescriptor>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

As a further clarification: what I want is to see in the XML report is information about per-test coverage. Either by showing the tests that hit a given line of code, or what lines a given test executes (both are acceptable).

And it looks like this is not possible with the XML report according to this answer:

I've created a feature request in Clover's issue tracker:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CLOV-1304

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

True. It is not possible to show tests which cover particular line at the moment.

Thank you for the report.

Cheers,
Jacek
