As a Jira administrator, you can create additional Test Step statuses. These statuses are applied to Test Step results. Each status can have a name, description, have a specific color and a Test Run Status.

If you delete a status and there are Test Step results in this particular status, then you'll be prompted for a migration status field to update the affected Test Steps. 

Native Test Step statuses can't be modified nor deleted.

Create a custom Test Step Status

New Test Step statuses can be created and all existing custom statuses can be modified.

To create a new custom status, go to the Add New Test Step Status section at the bottom of the page, fill out the following fields, and press Add":

  • Name: the name of the custom status, with the following syntax: ^[a-zA-Z0-9_-/]{2,18}$
  • Description: the description for the custom status
  • Color: the color for the new custom status.
  • Test Status: the Test Status to map this step status when calculating coverage.

Modify a custom Test Step Status

  1. Click Edit on the table entry corresponding to the status.
  2. Change the values inline and Save them.

Deleting a custom Test Step Status

  1. Click Delete on the table entry corresponding to the status.
  2. Confirm by clicking Delete.

Note: If deleting a custom status that is already associated with Test Steps, all affected Test Steps will be migrated to another status (native or custom). You will be prompted to select that new status.
