Can I use custom test fields in a test cycle search in Zephyr?


If I perform a simple test search, I am able to use any JQL to query any custom field about my test. However, if I'm searching within a test cycle, this becomes more limited. I can only use very specific test cycle criteria to search tests, which makes it difficult for multiple testers testing within a test cycle. There are even multiple testers within a component, so it's difficult for them to not step on each other's toes. Any ideas?

Hi Pedro,

Is it possible you can elaborate exactly what search you are wanting to do? We might be able to assist if we know what you want to search for.

Additionally to help you out, below is a link to our ZQL reference page. Please note that ZQL can only be used in the Zephyr for JIRA search test executions navigator, and JQL can only be used in the JIRA issue navigator. You can not mix or combine the searches.

Kind Regards,
