XRay and Automation: smart values

Hello! I'm working on Jira Cloud and I'm trying to configure a couple of Jira automations to do things like:

- Add a Test to a certain Test Execution.

- Change the Test Plan for a Test Execution.

- Add the tests from a Test Set to a Test Plan.

- Change a Test's execution status in a Test Execution.

But I'm unable to reach those fields with the smart values that the automations use, and I haven't found a way around it. I've tried things like {{issue.Test Plan}} or {{issue.Tests}} thinking that maybe the values were stored as any other custom field, but I've had no luck so far.

I'd really appreciate if someone could shed a light in this matter and help me. Thank you in advance!

Hi @Katia Sánchez 

The actions to add/changes between Xray issues are specific to Xray, so it is necessary to have a specific integration developed for the Jira automation that currently does not exist. 

We have this improvement suggestion (XRAYCLOUD-3165) to integrate Xray with Jira automation, currently gathering our customers' interest.
Please vote and watch it so that you can receive email alerts.

Please contact the Xray Support ( so that we can hear more about your use case.

Kind regards,
Rogério Paiva [Xray Support Team]

Hi, Rogério!

Hi @Katia Sánchez 

You might have already tried but you can find the smart name using the issues JSON. You can follow the instructions on this page to find the smart values:



Hi, John! Sorry, I couldn't respond earlier.

I actually didn't know I could find custom fields that way. In this case, as Rogério mentioned, it doesn't work because the Xray fields are not in the JSON.

Nevertheless, I'll keep that solution in mind in case other similar issues arise, since it seems to be quite useful. Thank you!
