Make Xray fields as mandatory

Hello All, I'm using Xray test management, and I'm facing some cases when my team forgets to add test execution to a test plan or even add a test environment to the test execution, so I'm wondering if there is any way to make these fields as mandatory before closing the test execution?

Hi @Malik Jamal 

As you mentioned "before closing the test execution" --> does "closing" in this case mean when the test execution is transitioned to a special workflow status (eg. Done, Closed, ...) ?

If so I would suggest to add a validation in the workflow so the issue could only be transitioned to this status when the mentioned fields are filled.

Hope I got your requirement right and this helps. In case there are further questions please let me and the community know ;)


Hi @Stefan Salzl 
Thanks a lot for your answer, 
but the issue is that I can't find these 2 fields, "Test Plan" and "Test environment" maybe because it Xray fields even I can't find it in the custom fields list.

Hi @Malik Jamal you 🙄🙈 could be because xray issues are not native jira. 

I‘ll double check this in regards of screens/screen schemes and get back to you soon.


@Stefan Salzl 
Thanks man, appreciate it a lot

Hi @Malik Jamal ,

Unfortunately I don´t have any better news :-/  

According to xray documentation it is possible to use some of its custom fields though Test Plan & Test Environment are not one of them.

I tried to configure some different screens/screen scheme or work with transition view/screen but wasn´t able to add the xray specific field :/

I can´t ensure 100% but I guess scriptrunner could solve this (in case this plugin is installed in your instance).
