A Jira re-index operation is recommended if there are changes to the Manual Test Statuses.

If you are an Xray administrator, you can create additional Test Run statuses. These statuses can only be applied to Test Run overall results. Each status can have a name, description, marked final and have a specific color.

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

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

Create or Modify a Custom Status

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

To create a new custom status, press Create on the Manage Test Statuses administration page. A new page will be displayed with a form containing the following fields:

  • Name: the name for the custom field, with the following syntax: ^[a-zA-Z0-9_/]{2,18}$
  • Description: the description for the custom status
  • Is Final: if the custom status is final or not. Final statuses will appear in the TestRunStatus custom field. 
  • Color: the color for the new custom status.
  • Requirement Status: the requirement status to map this status when calculating requirement coverage.

Deleting a Custom Status

Custom statuses can also be deleted from Jira. To delete an existing custom status press the delete link next to the status on the Manage Test Statuses administration page.

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


Final statuses have precedence over non-final statuses

When this option is enabled, the latest Test Issue Status is calculated based on the latest Test Run with a final status. Otherwise, this calculation will always consider the latest Test Run that was created even if the status is non-final.
