When cloning an issue of type “Test” provided by Xray Test Management for Jira, Deep Clone for Jira supports cloning Test Details of types Manual, Gherkin (Cucumber) or Unstructured (Generic).

Before Xray Test details can be cloned, a connection must be established between Deep Clone and Xray.

Connection setup

  • Create an API key in Xray following these instructions

  • In Jira, navigate to Apps > Manage your apps > Deep Clone > Third party integrations

  • Submit the Client ID and Client Secret of the generated Xray API key

How to clone Xray Test details

Once the connection is set up, a new option is available in the Deep Clone form. Please note that the Xray “Test” target issue type has to be selected.

The tests will be cloned to the same folder in the Test Repository as the original tests. When using Instance Clone, this repository may not exist. In that case, the default repository will be used.

Known Limitations

  • The target issue type has to be “Test”.

  • Other Xray entities, such as Dataset, Preconditions, Test Sets, Test Plans or Test Runs are not supported by Deep Clone for Jira at the moment.

  • Cloning Modular Tests is not supported at the moment, and called tests are cloned as regular manual tests.

Please let us know if these limitations are preventing you to use Deep Clone for Jira together with Xray Test Management.
