Finding test tickets not in test cycles

We are using Zephyr for JIRA 2.2. I've tried using Search Test Execution with "cycleName is EMPTY" in the navigator, but this finds nothing when it should. We want to track all our tests and make sure every one of them belong to a test cycle.

Any way to search test tickets that are not a part of a test cycle yet?

Hi Nicole,

Zephyr for JIRA itself does not have the capability of getting the tests that are not part of a cycle. Yet you can use a combination of JIRA's rest APIs and our ZAPI (Zephyr API) plugin to accomplish your goal.

You can grab all the tests and check if they have been executed or not. After accomplishing this you are able to rule out the test you don't want, in this particular case the ones that are executed.

I've provided documentation on our ZAPI add-on below:
