  1. Specify Cucumber tests using natural language, in Jira.
  2. Export Cucumber features from Jira to the CI environment, using the REST API.
  3. Implement tests in code and commit them to the source code versioning system.
  4. Execute tests in the CI environment.
  5. Report results to Xray, using the REST API.

  1. Create Cucumber tests (e.g. Scenario/Scenario Outlines) and their respective step code in some other tool.
    1. add an unique tag to each Scenario/Scenario outline, in the form of "@id:xxx", in which xxx is a number (e.g. 1, 2, 3, ...)
  2. Import existing Cucumber tests using the REST API (e.g., from an existing code base which may have tests, and their corresponding step implementation) 
  3. Export Cucumber features from Jira to the CI environment, using the REST API or the Jenkins/Bamboo plugins. It is crucial to use these exported features instead of the ones from the VCS, since the features exported from JIRA will contain additional tags that will allow several things, including the ability to correctly report the results to back to the correct entities in Jira, afterwards.
  4. Execute tests in the CI environment.
  5. Report results to Xray, using the REST API or the Jenkins/Bamboo plugins.
  6. Repeat from step 1 onwards.
