Hi @siddharth.asaithambi 


On Xray, we have a configuration (Jira Admin \ Apps \ Xray \ Miscellaneous \ Link Defects with Test) that will automatically Link the Test cases with the Defects.

If you have this configuration enabled, the Test cases will be linked with the Defects, and by checking the Defect's links, you will find the associated Test cases.


Please contact the Xray Support ( if you need additional help on this subject.

Kind regards,
Rogério Paiva [Xray Support Team]

Hi Reogerio,

Is this feature only available for Xray Server and no on Xray Cloud?

I want to be clear as I have the Could version and I did not think this was possible.



Hi @Rawan Bardini 

This feature is available in both server and cloud.

And in the cloud, you have more flexibility, as this option is available globally (configuration in the Jira Administration) or by the project (in the Project Settings).

In case you don't find this option in your instance, it is best to contact the Xray Support ( so that we can help you further.

Kind regards,
Rogério Paiva [Xray Support Team]
