Is there a way in to automatically link new test cases and test executions to an Xray test plan?

We are using Jira Cloud plus Xray Cloud. We use a test plan for each sprint so currently we need to:

Create a test plan for a sprint
Create new tests from a Jira story/bug (test is linked to the Jira ticket)
Go back to the test plan and manually link the tests
Create a test execution for the test
Manually link the test execution to the test plan (unless we create the test execution from the test plan directly)

Ideally if it's possible to reduce the amount of manual linking that would be great!

Create a test plan for a sprint
Any new tests and test executions created for the items on that sprint are linked to the test plan as they get created

Hi Rachel, 

The Test cases in a dynamic Test Plan will be provided by a saved filter of:

  • Test issues
  • Covered issues

In the case of covered issues, Xray will automatically add all Test cases associated with the covered issues.

Dynamic Test Plans will be updated automatically by the tool. Xray will process dynamic test plans in a specified interval. Project admins are able to configure in which workflow statuses a Test Plan must be automatically updated. For example, if a Test Plan is closed, it might not be necessary to refresh the tests in the test plan.

Best Regards, 

Team Xray
