How to show TestRun comment in Xray Jira? Edited

Hi all, first I apologize for reposting this question but this is already more than a year ago with no response.


I want to ask if there is a way to show the TestRun comment in the Test Execution issue page in Xray Jira? I noticed that only project administrators can view it (at least from what I observed) and it would really help to show this column to other users since it contains the failure messages from an imported test run.



We noticed that the xray test result failure messages is contained in the "TestRun Comment" rather than the "Comment" column but this column type is not visible to other project users. Is there a way to view them without modifying permissions? And if a permission update is required, is it possible to give read permission for it only?

We just made all our testers Project Admins.  We had to so they could assign Test Runs to themselves anyway.  Neither action should be the sole preserve of Project Admins - to have them so shows a lack of understanding of testing practice, and is arguably against Agile principles. 

That done, we have found the TestRun Comment really useful!
