    • Username: The username you use to authenticate to the Jira API.

    • Project Key: Enter the project key from Jira which refers to the project you want to integrate.
    • API Token (Xray Cloud only): Generate an API token. For more information on Atlassian API tokens, see Manage API tokens for your Atlassian account.
    • Client Id (Xray Cloud only): Create an API Key containing a Client Id and Client Secret. You need to be a Jira administrator to perform this action. Enter the Client Id generated in Jira Software.
    • Client Secret (Xray Cloud only): Enter the Client Secret generated in Jira Software.
  6. Click Save to add the connection. The Xray connection is added to the Integration list.
  7. Copy the API Key.
  8. Open Jira and navigate to Project Settings > UiPath Test Manager.
  9. Configure project settings and paste the API key in the API Key - XRay Integration field.

  4. In the Integration list, click an Xray connection to expand the panel.
  5. Click Edit to configure the connection.

Managing Tests Via Xray

The tests executed through the Orchestrator propagate the results to Xray. For more information on managing tests using Xray, see the Xray Documentation Home.

Important:
  • Test cases edited in the Test Manager are not synchronized with Xray. Conversely, changes made to test cases in Xray are reflected in the Test Manager.
