Zephyr: delete/hide ad hoc test cycle?

Test cycles contain a standard ad hoc test cycle for each version. Is there a possibility to delete/hide this ad hoc cycle as it is possible for all other cycles?

JIRA: 5.2.6

Hi All,

We are in the middle of 2018 and still no answer on this topic. I saw the discussion in Zephyr's page, this is a request from 2013...

We are using Jira Cloud and still no update.

If in the meantime anyone has found a way around it, please, let us know!

Thank you!


Is there any update on this? I have a hard time understanding, why such a simple request takes years to fix.

Zephyr has been purchased by SmartBear so it can't get any worse

Hi all,


having the same question in 2017 based on JIRA Cloud with the Zephyr plug-in.


Appreciate any reply ;)




Any ideas on that issue? Anybody?

Hi Werner I have exactly the same question now, did you manage to find a answer? I have configured my dashboard to display the Test Execution Chart gadget and have filtered this for my requirement Project/Version combination to display all cycles but like you I do not wish to see the ad hoc label.

We are now using JIRA 6.2.2 and Zephyr - still no change in behaviour!

Anyone here with an idea?

Same question here!

Has anyone found an answer to this? We will never use the "Ad Hoc" test cycle and would like to get rid of it. We are using Zephyr for Jira

9 months and no response.. sad

Does anyone have any update?  There seems to be no resolution yet. This topic is also being discussed on Zephyr:






Years and years go by. From a technical point of view, i never understood this functionality.. Please make it removable.

I would suggest a transition BACK to spreadsheets in preference of Zephyr for JIRA
