Xray's profile'


Xray is the #1 Manual & Automated Test Management App for Quality Assurance in Jira. Developed by Xpand IT, a Platinum Atlassian Solution Partner, it’s a full-featured tool that lives inside and seamlessly integrates with Jira. It aims to help companies improve the quality of their products through effective and efficient testing. They can plan, execute and track their testing with full requirements traceability.

Xray supports both manual and automated tests, including BDD using Cucumber besides JUnit, NUnit, Robot and others. It covers the entire testing life cycle: test planning, test specification, test organization in a flat or hierarchical way, test execution and test reporting. It does this by using special Jira issue types, so you can use all Jira benefits that you are used besides giving the flexibility to organize them in the same project or across multiple projects, for clear separation of concerns.

With Xray, managers can enhance Agile boards by tracking requirement status and test execution progress in real-time. It can also generate advanced reporting that can be exported to docx, xlsx or pdf using Xporter.
Integration with your favourite Continuous Integration tool, including Bamboo and Jenkins, is straightforward using our free add-ons or even through our built-in REST API.
With over 4000 customers in 75 countries, Xray is the fastest-growing app for Jira.
