How to enable Xray Requirement Coverage

How to Enable it, 

2 answers

Hi Leela,

Enabling xray requirement coverage is a simple setting that can be made for every Jira project. I am going to assume you have already installed and configured xray in your Jira instance.

Within a Jira project, select Project Settings, then select Xray Settings, then select Test Coverage. This enables you to update the Coverable Issue Types in that Jira project. Usually these are Stories, sometimes Bugs, or even Epics, etc, all depending on how you have set your Jira taxonomy for test management.

Here is a link to the Xray Cloud User Guide that also has additional detail on enabling Test Coverage and the hierarchy.

Hope this helps!

I appreciate your answer, it leads to a couple more questions.  I see mention of a "requirement status" additional field to Issues for the display of the coverage of an issue on the board.  This link doesn't mention that.  Could you point me to support for how to set this up?

Also on the "Test Coverage" page you reference, I have coverable issue types all set up.  But how do I set the "Issue Links relation" field and what role does it play?

Thanks -- Joe

Hi @Joe Bowen 

If you are starting to use Xray, I would advise checking our onboarding documentation:

And mainly the Xray Academy to get an overview of the tool's capabilities:

Thanks for the links.  I see the page you're referencing and have it configured.  However I see examples where the board shows a "requirement status" for each coverable issue.  Where do I define those visual items so this item can display, and can you point me to the reference on how they work?

Thanks -- Joe

Hi @Joe Bowen 

This documentation page should help explain how the Requirement Status work:

If you need additional help, please contact the Xray Support ( ) so that we can request additional information and help further.
