Can I edit the layout of the issue type "Xray Test"?


I'd like to put the precondition section before the details section in a Xray Test,

is it possible to do that?

It seems the layout cannot be changed from the issue layout in Project settings.

Where can I do the settings for Xray issues?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Letitia, 

To change this configuration you have to go to Jira Administration >> Add-ons >> Xray >> Miscellaneous.

Hi José,

Thanks for the reply.

I tried to find the setting but couldn't find it.

Our first setting item in Miscellaneous is "Display Manual Test Steps table in short

view", we don't have "Display Pre-Conditions section before Test Details".

We're using Jira Cloud, is that why?

Thank you.

Hi Letitia, 

In fact, you are right, we didn't know from our side that you were using a cloud instance. At the cloud level, it's not possible to configure the order of the section on the screen.

At the server level that is possible.

We apologize for this.

Best Regards,

Team Xray

Hi José,

Got it! Thanks a lot.

Are you talking about the detail display or when creating/editing an issue? If the detail display that can't be changed. If creating/editing you need to modify the create, edit, and view screens. 

Hi Joe,

I'm talking about the display, I'd like to see the preconditions before the test steps when I'm executing a test. It's a pity that the display cannot be changed. 

Anyway, thanks for your help. :)
