Xray test cases and number of steps reporting

I am trying to report on number of steps per Xray test cases.  I run the Test List report, I add the column, "Number of Steps" and I don't get a count on any of my tests and I know I have steps in almost 90% of my tests.  Is there a flag that triggers a count?

Hi @Jose Correa 

The column "Number of Steps" is not an Xray field, so, understandably, it does not show the number of the steps in Xray Tests.

Currently, in Xray Cloud, we don't have a field to show the number of steps. It is best to contact Xray Support ( to share your use case so that we can analyze it and look for options.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

It is not a field?  But its a option to show/display the fields in the dashboard or filters?  Are you sure?xraysteps.PNG

Hi @Jose Correa 

It is not an Xray field, it is a field of course, but not one provided by Xray.

In Jira it is possible to create new fields, however, these manually created fields are independent of Xray, so these will not have a relationship with Xray or with its features.

So these fields, will not display information related to Xray.

Although, these Jira fields can be shown in the Xray report, do not make them an Xray field.

In my Xray test environment the Number of Steps does not exist:


Someone or something must have created that field in your instance, not Xray.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
