To keep the test cycle page tidy, we are archiving versions so they no longer show in the version list. I'm noticing that they are not archiving in the test cycle page when we do this, is this intentional or a possible bug? If the version could be hidden in the drop down list along with the test cycles associated with it - but not deleted - management would be a bit easier!
We recognize that archiving releases makes management easier. We recently removed archived releases from our gadgets and hope to remove them from cycles in a coming release.
We are new users of Zephyr and we are seeing all versions including archived versions in the "Select Versions" dropdown on the Plan a Test Cycle page. Is there some setting to toggle this?
Just to provide a quick update on this:
Test cycles are displayed based on the version in which they exist with "Unscheduled" being a pseudo-version of its own. Archiving a version won't remove it from the drop down list at this time, but marking it as "released" will put it into a separate category. By hiding a version from the versions menu completely, the plugin would have no other viable way to display cycles from archived versions at this time. We do have this on the list for consideration.
For: @Andrew Morin, @Sam Selfridge, @bony, @Steve Kealey, @Isaac Stennett and @Julio Verano, I'll make sure your names are added as showing interest. This way project management personnel are aware of how important and useful the community finds this potential feature.
Thanks, everyone, for your great feedback!

Dear Zephyr team,
In the release that we had prior to 2.6.0, we were able to create folders that we labeled as "Archive" folders. We were then able to move execution "versions" into these archive folders in order to clean up the multitude of versions in the Zephyr. Your users have been complaining about this for 6 years. Apparently, user complaints rank at at priority 4 level for Zephyr.
The ability to "archive" test cycles independantly from the the project's jira version status would be better. Many times there are "released" versions that our users would like to hide (but not all "releases" versions). Any update on when/how tihs feature will be released?
If you do implement this, please consider making it as an option:
My process is currently relying on archive status being independent.
We have raised the feature request for the above feature. It is raised under FR-667. Adding a feature request to our system means we acknowledge that it is a feature that does not exist in our system and that it has been added to the pipeline for consideration.
Thanks & Regards,
Our project need the same.
When we are searching some test Cases in the "Search Test Execution", all the historical fixVersions are proposed. Couldn't we limit the search on the list of Versions of Jira (like I think it should be) ?
It would really improve the tool and make the search easier and faster
Dear Zephyr team,
This feature FR-667 still has yet to be implemented. This issue was raised in 2013 and it is 2019! Can you please have the following implemented as soon as possible:
This request has been around for years - I have to wade through DOZENS of RELEASED versions. Why would I want to assign a test execution to a cycle on a RELEASED fixVersion? Get rid of it please.
