How to automate the resolution of a Requirement (Story/Epic) from the Test Plan status(XRAY)? Edited


I want to automatically set the status of an Epic or Story to "closed" (meaning it has been validated) when the related Test Plan (Xray item) is resolved/closed (meaning all status of test runs are passed).

How to proceed?

Hi Anne-Sophie,

that can be achieved using a post-function in the Test Plan. You should be able to implement a script, for example using ScriptRunner, that on status transition will obtain all the requirements tested by the Test Plan (testPlanRequirements) or the requirements with some coverage status based on the test plan (requirementsWithStatusByTestPlan), and then iterate them and transition them to a given workflow status.

More info on the JQL functions here:
