How to get Xray Test related to Test Execution with scriptrunner in Jira cloud

thibaud_norguet-sc April 14, 2023

Hi,

I'm on Jira Cloud and I want to autofill a custom field on a Test execution: when a Test Execution is created on a Test page, set custom field value on Test execution inherit from with the value of the custom field on Test.

On Jira Data Center, I used Scriptrunner and the custom field “Tests association with a Test Execution” to get the issue key of the Test, and then get the value of the custom field.

In cloud version, the “Test association with a Test Execution” custom field does not exist anymore.

 

I read about Xray REST API and GraphQL but I don't know how to use it with scriptrunner (authenticattion, call, and so on)

I tried also with Jira Cloud Automation but I don't know what conditions to choose to link Test Execution and Test.

 

Do you know how can I autofill a custom field of a Xray Test Execution from the Test custom field value on Jira Cloud ?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

I found a solution using Xray GraphQL API.

As GraphQL have a specific format, I used an online tool to convert the GraphQL query (found on Xray documentation) to convert it to a JSON body for the POST request.

 

import groovy.json.*

// get Xray API token using Xray REST API
def idclient = JsonOutput.toJson([client_id: "my_xray_api_id", client_secret: "my_xray_api_secret"])
def getToken = post('https://xray.cloud.getxray.app/api/v2/authenticate').header('Content-Type', 'application/json').body(idclient).asObject(Map)
def apiToken = getToken.headers['x-access-token'][0]

// get Test Execution key
def issueKey = issue.key


// GraphQL query in JSON body format
def msg = [ "query":"{ getTestExecutions(jql: \"key = ${issueKey}\", limit: 10) { results { tests(limit: 10) { results { jira(fields: [\"key\"]) } } } }}" ]

// call GraphQL API function
def result = post('https://xray.cloud.getxray.app/api/v2/graphql')
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
.header('Authorization', "Bearer ${apiToken}")
.body(msg)
.asObject(Map)

if(result.status == 200){

// rest of my code

}

Hi @thibaud_norguet-sc !

Could you help me to add this API and use it?
I've been reading about this, and can't figure they way to add it and apply it.

Hi @thibaud_norguet-sc - welcome to the community,

As I mainly try to solve things with A4J in cloud and the only experience I have with scriptrunner is on Server/DC I´m wondering how this could be done here.

The action itself (test is added to test execution) is an xray specific action --> means jira native, therefore A4J could not grab this event with a trigger.

How did you grab the event on Server in your scriptrunner solution?

Hi @Stefan Salzl 

Thank you for your reply

The main purpose is to facilitate Test Execution creation for end user.

So the trigger is not when a test is added to a Test Execution, but when a Test execution is created from an existing Test, so Test Execution inherit values from the Test and user don't have to fill the field manually.

 

On Server/DC, I created a post function on Test Execution workflow : when a Test Execution is created, the scriptrunner script is run to get and set the values.

 

I finally found a solution for my issue using Xray GraphQL API (this is the only way to get Xray datas in Cloud, a lot of Xray custom fields disappeared from Server/CD to Cloud).

 

Best.
