Automated tests with native support for BDD methodology and more

With native support for Behavior Driven Development (Gherkin/Cucumber) and integration with multiple test automation frameworks, including JUnit, NUnit, Robot, Behave, Calabash, Selenium and UFT Pro (LeanFT) there’s no excuse not to automate your tests and manage them in Jira.

The only tool that allows you to manage all your Tests as Jira issues

Xray’s tests are normal Jira issues which allow for full Jira power. Thus, you are able to configure screens, workflows and add custom fields to your testing related issues. Tests may validate requirements, defects, any issue type in fact. And you can track their progress in your existing Agile boards!

Ensures consistency by storing test definitions for past executions

In some regulated industries data consistency is crucial and mandatory, to ensure that your recorded data is not tampered. Xray ensures that your historical test data is not changed, so you know the exact conditions and specifications for which you reported your results.
