JIRA XRAY plugin creates duplicate test case when importing using API and feature file


I have a bash script that takes all the feature files from a specific directory and uses `/rest/raven/1.0/import/feature?projectKey=XYZ` XRAY-JIRA API to create TEST CASES in JIRA.

`XRAY version 4.2.1_j7`

I am running this script in a JENKINS-PIPELINE but the problem is when I run it for the first time it creates test cases that are correct but when I re-run the build it starts creating the same test cases again (duplicating them), any suggestion/reason why this is happening

My bash script:
find <DIR_PATH> -type f -name "*.feature" | while read fname;
curl -H "Content-Type:multipart/form-data" -X $USERNAME:$PASSWORD -F "file=@$fname"


Sample feature file:
Feature Facebook Login

Scenario: Log in to FB app
Given: User is at FB login page
When User enters username and password
Then User is logged in successfully

Please suggest to me how and where can I debug to fix the issue

Hi @Prashant Jeet Singh 

Please check the conditions that Xray uses to find if the Test case already exists, or if it is a new one and create it:

If you need further help, please get in touch with Xray Support (

Thank you.

Kind regards,
