How are you storing these test cycles in JIRA?

p.s. your screenshot gives away user and company data, so you should probably block out the personal details or delete it from this question.

Hi @Sam Hall

We already installed a Zephyr in JIRA . 

Do we need to install another plugin ZAPI to communicate using rest APIs or this was a part of Zephyr. ?


Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Community Leader Feb 06, 2017

You do need to install the ZAPI add-on as well as Zephyr.

Hi @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] / @Sam Hall

Already installed both Zypher / ZAPI add-on. [Screenshot 1-3]

But still not able to connect ZAPI api . [Screenshot 4]

http://JIRA Server URL /jira/rest/zapi/latest/util/project-list

Correct us if we need to enable something or something wrong on url ?

I think you are using the wrong endpoint. 

Have a look here:

This mentions the base URI for Zapi API calls is:

If you have more questions or need help, you should probably raise requests directly with the vendors of Zephyr/ZAPI at:

HI @Sam Hall

Used this reference link to fetch the test data , but not able to . Receving 404 when trying to hit for 

https:/xxxxxxxxxx Server url /connect/public/rest/api/1.0/teststep/48938

Is this API is correct ? 

I am currently using a trial version of ZAPI . Is it allows me to connect to API ?

Also when tried to fetch the project list using following :


Receiving 401 - is the below syntax is correct ?





Sam Hall Feb 10, 2017

I don't know, I'm afraid.

Did you have a look on the Zepyhr/Zapi support pages? There is plenty of info there.

The API documentation gives the details of how to get test steps here:

And there is this about the 401:

Maybe someone on here will give you better answers but, as said in my comment above, it is probably better if you send questions directly to Zephyr.

Why not follow the "Have more questions? Submit a case" link in their getting started guide?:


This takes you to a page where you can sign-up and raise support case/questions with the people who built the add-ons. I'm sure they will be much more knowledgable than me:

p.s. just to double check:

I think you should be using a url starting with, not your JIRA url.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
