JQL for Searching all "User Stories" without test cases linked to it


How to get a list of all the user stories that are not linked to any test cases using JQL?

2 answers

Hi @Varun Pradhan

As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.

With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions

You can use this query to find your uses stories that don’t have a link with test cases

issue in linkedIssuesOfQuery("type != 'test cases'") and type = 'User Stories'

Check out the documentation for more examples.

If you have any other questions, please contact our support. We’ll be happy to help you!
Best regards,
