Automated (Selenium) tests for Jira?

I was wondering if Atlassian provided any Automated UI tests for Jira? Say Selenium?

I would assume Atlassian has automated tests for Jira. Some standard stuff like issue creation and so on. It would be a great service if they could be shared.

That way us that have a Jira installation could use/modify them with our installations. Would be great for automating the testing of upgrades and such.

We avoid Selenium testing except for very specific UI interactions. Our integration testing uses GINT - Groovy Integration Test Framework and most is non-selenium especially for basics like issue creation, workflow testing, etc...  Feature - JIRA testing has an example. When we need selenium, we use How to run Selenium as a GINT test and specific support built in for JIRA (SeleniumHelperForJira). For the later, unfortunately there are no examples or documentation (GINT-81) yet sad and our tests that use that support are not public.
