Overview

Xray is a complete Test Management tool for Jira. It is a full-featured app that does not require any other software in order to run.

Xray supports the entire testing life cycle:  test planning, test design, test execution and test reporting. We do this by using special Jira issue types, so you can use all Jira benefits that you are used to.

Our aim is to help you improve the quality of your systems through effective and efficient testing. That's why from our first version, Xray already supports both manual and automated tests, including full support for Cucumber tests in the native language (i.e., English).

Feel free to contact us if you need to implement an effective test management tool, want to request a demo, or if you have any question. We're here to help you.

Discover why so many people and organizations choose Xray every single day.
