Comparison between Zephyr & Xray

I am sharing this article with both Zephyr and Xray information and everything should be in one place. It will be easy to know when selecting Zephyr or Xray.

Zephyr and Xray are both Jira plug-ins used for test case management i.e., test case writing and execution purposes. Both do almost similar kind of work with some advantages and disadvantages of them with respect to cost, automation, reporting, etc. 

Here is the feature level comparison for Zephyr and Xray

Features - 1Features - 2

Reports:

Zephyr provides Traceability Report, Test Case Execution Report, Test Execution Burndown Chart and Top Defects Impacting Testing, etc. whereas Xray provides Traceability Report, Overall Requirement Coverage Report, Historical Requirement Coverage Report, Test Plans Report, Test Executions Report, Test Runs Report, etc.

Cost:

Regarding versioning:

The approach Xray is using is not really versioning that people expect. You cannot just select that you want to include version 2 into one test execution and version 3 of the same test in another test execution. Versioning is only supported in the way Jira is doing it.... But you definitely get a frozen list of test steps in a test execution that won't be changed if you change the test case afterwards. Which is most of the time enough, also for enterprises and big projects/programs from my experience. See https://docs.getxray.app/display/XRAY/Test+Versioning

Real versioning of test cases is only possible if you don't use Jira issues to store the date like it is done in for example in QMetry Test Management for Jira (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1215144/qmetry-test-management-for-jira?hosting=cloud&tab=overview)
