Connecting to Xray Cloud

Xray is an extension for Jira that manages tests. Xray is available as a hosted or cloud-based application. DTP can send data to hosted instances of Xray through the connection as described in Connecting DTP to Jira. For cloud-based instances of Xray, enable the Xray (Cloud) enabled option and specify the Xray client ID and secret so that you can leverage the functionality described in the Sending results from DTP to JIRA/Xray section.

This artifact sends test data to Jira when DTP Data Collector retrieves test results from a Parasoft tool. This artifact ships with the Traceability Pack, which must be installed as described in Installing the Traceability Pack before deploying the flow. 

  1. Open Extension Designer and click on the Services tab.
  2. Choose an existing service to deploy the artifact or create a new service in the DTP Workflows category. Refer to Working with Services for additional information on organizing services and artifacts.
  3. If you are adding the artifact to an existing service, add a new Flow tab (see Working with Flows) and choose Import> Library> Workflows> Traceability Pack> Sending Test Data to External Application  from the vertical ellipses menu.
  4. Click inside the Flow tab to drop the nodes into the service and click Deploy

You can modify the ExternalAppsSettings.properties configuration file located in the <DTP_DATA_DIR>/conf directory to change the default behavior of the integration. DTP's out-of-the-box integration with Jira/Xray is configured to use default or commonly-used fields and types. If you customized your Jira/Xray system, however, then you can configure the following settings to align data in DTP with your custom Jira/Xray configuration.
