Coverage By Requirement (Test Cases linked directly)

The Coverage By Requirement report displays the coverage relationship between Stories and Test Cases. For the selected Project, the Coverage Report shows which stories have one or more test cases associated with it. The requirement coverage is critical for the successful delivery of the project. Requirements, which are covered by/linked to a test case, are identified covered requirements.  

The Requirement filter in the report configuration supports JQL that allows users to use multiple fields like Project, Issue Type, Issue Status, etc. as filters to generate the report. Write a JQL query to construct the story selection criteria with different filters. You can save the applied Filter and add it as a  gadget on the dashboard.

Note: The report gets updated dynamically if new stories are added matching the selection criteria.

You can refer to and for more details.


The chart displays Story Coverage based on test cases within the selected stories.

  • Covered: It refers to Stories that have test cases linked to them.

  • Not Covered: It refers to Stories that don’t have any test case within them.
