Xray Cloud how to find tests without test execution

We have a strutucte with test plan, linked to test executions, and linked to test sets. Test cases are added to one or several test sets, test sets are then added to test executions. There are several testers creating test cases, so we want to be able to double check that all test cases are added to at least one test execution.


Is there a way to create a filter to find that information when using Xray Cloud?


Thanks in advance for any help on the topic.

Hi Cristina,

Not sure about Xray but the App which I am using it has the capability to arrange my test cases in a folder based hierarchy and get the latest execution on the screen. Also, I can refer a different reporting option to track the execution and overall testing progress. 


Hi Brian,

Which app ar you using? I'm afraid we are bound to use xray in the project I'm working in, so I'm more interested in finding a solution with xray. But it is good to have information about other apps, just in case.



Hey I am using QMetry for Jira - Test Management app.

thanks, I'll have a look at it. 

Hi Cristina,

You can use the Filter to show you only the Tests without Executions, like you can see on the following screenshot:

Hi Inês,

Thanks for your suggestion, I will try it, even though it seems a bit cumbersome. To be able to filter test cases without test execution, I will need to create a dummy test plan, add all my test cases and add all my test executions; and then filter. Once the test cases are identified, then I can delete the test plan again.

Nice functionality to have in the future would be to be able search test cases linked to at least one test set  :-)

Best regards,


Hi Cristina,

Thank you for your suggestion, we will take it into account!

I am using X-Ray also, but I do not see a Filter option for  toggling on/off the "Tests without Execution".  How do I add that option?

I am a bit late, but maybe it will be useful ...

You can use the JQL function "testExecutionTests"  (

"Parameter P1 can either be a single Test Execution issue key, an ID or a saved filter containing multiple Test Execution issues."

You create a filter with all your test Execution (like issuetype = "Test Execution"). Register it with a name like "All Test Execution".


Then, the list of Test without Test Execution will be the result of :

issuetype = Test AND issue not in testExecutionTests("All Test Execution")
