Unable to import testcases from excel to Xray

I am getting the below-attached message: 

Please note: A Jira Summary, Xray Test Case Identifier and Custom Fields [Action] are required to enable import.

1 answer

HI @Piyush Sahu 

The "Step" as been renamed to "Action" as you can see on the section of manual steps:

When using the Test Case Importer the correct mapping should be the "Action".

Then to recap, right now, by default, each Test Step has the following fields:

Action* - the action to be reproduced by the tester
Data - any data the related step requests (e.g., login credentials) to be used by the tester
Expected Result - the behavior the step should accomplish.
Attachments - external files that provide additional information related to the corresponding step. Attachments can only be added or removed in the Test Issue view page.

*Only the Action field is mandatory. All other default fields are optional.

However, to correctly import, you need to map Summary, Test Case Identifier, and Action.

Best Regards,

Team Xray

Hi @Siddhesh Patil 

It looks like the action column is missing from your file, please add the column like described in the documentation here.

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

Kind regards,
Rogério Paiva [Xray Support Team]
