Is it possible to import Custom Zephyr fields using Zephyr Test Case Importer Utility?

I have created custom Zephyr fields and included into Jira Project. While trying to import the test cases from Excel, I am not able to map these new custom Zephyr fields in the Zephyr Import Utility.

How to enable listing of these new Zephyr custom fields while doing field mapping in Zephyr import utility?

I have similar query as well, where new custom field has been added, and it was not able to map from Issue Field - Import File Mapping.

By the way, the custom fields is not able to see when create test.

But it is able to view after the test case created. Is it i had missed some configuration ?

I have the same issue as above.  Did you find an answer to it ?

Hello, this is old. 

But it appears that Zephyr needs the custom fields to be linked to the screen. Usually a custom field context is enough, zephyr needs an association with the actual screen.

You will need to be a full Jira administrator to do this.

This happens because the "Project" to which you want to import the data would be associated to a screen which have not been configured to these custom field types.

  1. Using Jira Administration navigate to <Issues>-><Fields>-><Custom Fields>
  2. Scroll to the corresponding Custom field you want the screen to be configured to in the list and click on the cog wheel associated to it as shown in the screen shot below.Click on "Screens" from the dropdown
  3. It will result in a page displaying the list of screens and check against the screen (associated with your project) to associate the particular  custom field to that screen as shown in the screen shot below
  4. Now reconnect to your cloud URL in the importer utility, select the same project and you will observe the missing Test Custom Fields available now for mapping.

Zephyr custom field has to be associated with the screen used in the project. see: https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-squad/faq/custom-fields-set-up-for-our-tests-are-not-availab/

Hi,

We used the Zephyr API to implement this functionality.

@Deepa Talwaria can you please provide more details on this. I think I am stuck exactly at this point.

The custom fields I created at test details level is not available while importing in the Zephyr Testcase importer.

Hi,

The Zephyr Testcase importer does not support custom fields. However, there are Zephyr APIs available which can be used to import the custom fields created at test step level.

Hi,

I have also observed this and think is the expected behavior, as the test steps and test execution fields are not listed while "Test Issue creation".

Can someone from Zephyr team confirm this?
