XRAY Jira - Can we create test execution set from User Story

Hi All,

I have created a user story and idea is to link with Test Sets and then Tests and Test Execution.

When we run via scrum, then it good to have to walkthrough just via User story.

I am not able to find how to create the test execution set from user story or test execution set link and visible at user story level.


Any suggestions ?

Well. The reason why you see that because the filter in the "Test Coverage" part of a user story has "latest execution" and "All environments" selected by default. In agile the focus is on the user stories(requirements). "Is the product behaving as it supposed to?" that is the question. Xray complements it by allowing us to link the test cases to make sure that the requirement works or not. So linking all wanted test cases to a user story(requirement) and also executing and passing all those test cases( in a particular version) means that the requirement has been implemented properly. So even if you are executing the same test case as part of another user story in the same version of the product the status will reflect in the old user story because the previous requirement is also being validated automatically.  This removed the documentation overhead to track what test cases a tester executed for different user stories for the same version of the product.

Coming back to your question, to see the added test cases in "TODO", all you have to do is to select the version under test in the "TEST COVERAGE" section of the user story. You have to add the version that is under test in jira to be able to do that. Also you will be able to see all the execution done for the test case as part of testing the user story, knowingly of unknowingly under test runs.


Hi Hitesh,

You can link a requirement (Story) with a Test Set (instead of individual Tests) using the "tested by" link type.
This way the requirement will be tested by all the Tests that belong to the Test Set.
Additionally you can create Sub Test Executions as the requirement sub task and then put the Tests from the Test Set into to this Sub Test Execution.
And this way you can track down the Test Executions (Sub) associated with the requirement in the Agile boards.
Please check our documentation about Agile Enhancements here:

Thanks once again but this lead me more confusion :( 

I have user story linked with test set now and that test set linked with Test plan having test execution set with say Pass, fail and pass status for 3 test cases.

Now I have another user story and want to re-run the same above 3 test case. I have linked the test set with user story now then I could see all three test cases are now populated with Pass, fail and Pass status which I think is incorrect.

I am expecting default status should be TODO so when I can create test execution out of test plan then the status should reflect accordingly. 

Am i making sense here ?

I have the same problem, is there any way to work around this?

If you have the same TestCase linked to different uset stories, it will be nice to have a different status for them, somehow to make a correlation with the test execution linked to that US.

I am also facing same problem.  Is there a solution or workaround for this??
