X-Ray is great, but I'm running into some conceptual problems when setting it up to interact with JIRA Agile Sprints. I have a few questions:
Any thoughts on how to make this as elegant when integrated into a Scrum team?
Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I'm currently investigating test tooling options for an Agile team and, without having implemented X-Ray yet, have the following model in my head:
I struggled conceptually due to having previously worked with Zephyr, in which executions only exist as (second class, conceptual) sub-types of Tests.
Would appreciate thoughts before we implement this strategy!
Well, this is 4 years late, but I had a similar question and this article really helped me understand the different xray types in the context of sprints and releases:
"Tests, Pre-Conditions and Test Sets are reusable entities; thus, in typical scenarios, they do not belong to the scope of a release or of a sprint.
On the other hand, Test Executions, Sub-Test Executions and Test Plans represent work targeted for a given release and/or a given sprint. Thus, they can be tracked as any other issue that needs to be handled in the scope of your release/sprint. If you have these issues assigned to some release through the FixVersion/s field, then they will appear in the summary information of the Releases project page as shown ahead."
