What is Xray in Jira?

Xray is a powerful testing and test management app for Jira. It is designed to enhance the testing capabilities within Jira and supports the entire testing lifecycle: test planning, test design, test execution, and test reporting. Teams can utilize Xray to efficiently plan, track, and report their testing activities.

With Xray, you can create and organize test plans, define test cases with step-by-step instructions, track the progress of test execution, and capture test results. It leverages specific Jira issue types to maximize the benefits of Jira.

The goal of Xray is to enhance the quality of systems through effective and efficient testing. Therefore, it supports both manual and automated tests, including BDD frameworks such as Cucumber, SpecFlow, and Serenity BDD.
