How to integrate your automated tests pipeline with Jira and Xray?

How to integrate your automated tests pipeline with Jira and Xray?

Let's say that you are committed to automated tests and have also built a fluent CI (Continuous Integration) pipeline. Each commit triggers the pipeline and runs a set of automated tests. However, your development cycle starts in Jira, and you would like to close the loop in Jira too. Hence, you want that the automated test cycles will be reported into Jira, providing greater visibility into the status of development.

If your organization uses Microsoft SharePoint to organize business-critical documents, then you know how cumbersome documenting official sign-offs of Jira Cloud issues can be. Does this workflow sound familiar? Export the documentation from Jira. Sign the exported tool using a third-party eSignature app that’s external to Jira (e.g. DocuSign or Adobe Sign).
