The Xray team is proud to announce the release of Xray 3.5.0.
The main goal for this version is to improve filtering capabilities on Test Executions and the Test Coverage reports. Users can now choose any field in Jira to filter and use JQL.
Another relevant feature is the ability to provide a custom JSON file when importing execution results to specify how the Tests will be created in Jira.
As part of our continuous improvement, more performance enhancements have also been included in this version.
Discover the key features below.
Upgrading Xray to 3.5.x
If you are upgrading from a version lower than 3.2, this implies that an upgrade task will run to pre-calculate historical data. This action is a one time action and it will run in the background so that Xray is still available during the upgrade. A re-index operation of your Jira instance is required so that the internal data becomes searchable and usable by Xray.
If you are upgrading from v3.2.x or v3.3.x to v3.5, you must recalculate data in the Xray configuration section → Custom Fields. This recalculation is necessary because of the huge improvement in the amount of data that Xray needs to add to the table and to the Lucene indexes.
Downgrading from Xray 3.5.x
Downgrading from Xray 3.5.x to a version less than 3.2.0 implies that you must perform a re-index afterwards. This is because from Xray 3.2.0 onwards, the content and format of what Xray indexes, has changed.
Historical Coverage Gadget
Some configuration parameters for this gadget were modified as a result of supporting multiple projects whenever using a saved filter as a source. It is possible that some users will get errors on the gadget after downgrading from 3.5.x. If this happens, please edit the configuration to ensure the gadget is configured properly.
