Can you use Test Metrics in Zephyr for Jira to report on tests assigned to labels?

Using the Zephyr for Jira functionaity I am configuring a testing dashboard to give me the test metrics that I require. However there appears to be no way to add a gadget that gives me a breakdown of tests at label level. Any ideas?

Hi Simon,

The only place you can add labels is too the issue type Test. Not the executions directly. Since you can not add labels to the executions, what you could do is use a mix of ZAPI (Zephyr for JIRA API's) and JIRA APIs. With them you will use JIRA API's to pull all the issue type Test by a specific label. Then you can use ZAPI to pull all the executions that belong to the test case that has that specific label. But this is the closest you can get too achieving what you need.

Just in case, below is a list of our ZAPI information if you want to check it out/get started:
