Is it possible to create Xray Test Sets and Executions as sub items

I want to create Xray Test sets and mort of all Test Executions as sub items to JIRA Stories and Tasks. Is it technically possible and if so - how?

I want to keep my possibility to create those items as regular ones also.

Hi @nikolay kostov,

with Xray 2.0 you can create Sub Test Executions as sub-tasks of your stories: see details here.

How would you need to create Test Sets as sub-tasks? Test Sets are mainly used for organizing Tests, independently on execution related aspects.

If needed, you can always create multiple Sub Test Executions, each one containing the tests of specific Test Sets.

Would that address your needs?
