Xray supports integration with some well known Continuous Integration tools but it can be used with other ones thanks to Xray's REST API.
Popular CI tools
Case you need to integrate with another CI tool, normally you will have to follow these steps.
Export tests from JIRA
- Run the tests
- Import the results back to JIRA
Note that you might have your tests specification in your Version Control System (e.g. GIT, SVN) and prefer to implement CI from there onwards. In that case, in step 1, you would obtain the tests from your VCS.
CI in a project using Cucumber tests
Export Cucumber tests
Unzip the tests (Cucumber .feature files)
Run the tests and save the report
Import the test results to JIRA
