Top 3 reasons to choose Xray over Zephyr and Zephyr Scale

Explore and learn more about everything that separates Xray from its main competitors in test management for QA in Jira.

Test-Management

Accelerated efficiency with enterprise support for Automated Testing

With native support for BDD (Gherkin/Cucumber) and integration with multiple test automation frameworks, including JUnit, NUnit, Robot, behave, Calabash, SpecFlow, Selenium, and UFT Developer (formerly UFT Pro or LeanFT), there’s no excuse not to automate.

Exploratory-Testing

Powerful coverage analysis and test environments for fast deployment

Xray’s unique capability of advanced coverage analysis gives you real-time statuses of the coverage of requirements on a given version, a given plan, and even a specific environment, so you can quickly assess if requirements are validated and can be safely deployed.

poor-coverage

The only app that allows you to manage all your tests as Jira issues

Xray’s tests are normal Jira issue types, allowing you to configure screens, workflows, and add custom fields to your testing-related issues. With Test Management natively integrated, your testers and developers are working on the same interface and can easily collaborate.
