Xray: How to import feature file into test repository


I am using Jira v8.5.1 and I am currently working on a project that involves XRAY APIs.

I need to import a Cucumber Test file, so I'm using the POST /rest/raven/1.0/import/feature API.

But now, the client is asking me to import it into a specific XRAY Test Repository.

I could not find so far any solution to this in the documentation. I found how to create a repository, but not how to upload a feature file directly into it.

Do you have any idea how I could achieve this ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi Cedric,

Currently, this is not possible. However, we have this suggestion already in our backlog:  XRAY-4408

Best Regards,

Team Xray

Hi Cedric Mathis,

Can you please let me know how you are using POST /rest/raven/1.0/import/feature API. I am facing issues with this API. Please send me header section and complete URL for this request.


I am using a simple curl for this API :

curl -H "Content-Type:multipart/form-data" -u $CREDENTIALS -F "file=@$FILE_LOCATION" https://$JIRA_URL/rest/raven/1.0/import/feature?projectKey=$PROJECT_KEY

With parameters :

  • $CREDENTIALS  to connect to the application
  • $FILE_LOCATION   which is the feature file I'm uploading
  • $JIRA_URL which is the URL of our Jira server
  • $PROJECT_KEY which is the key of the Jira project in which I'm uploading

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<message>null for uri: https://JIRAURL/rest/raven/1.0/import/feature?projectKey=$projectKey</message>


I am getting this response when I am hitting this request using POSTMAN. Credentials I have passed as Basic Auth in header of request

Do we require token to authorize this request

I needed an account to Jira, but that's it. There are no specific rights  (basic rights, jira-users).


The "null for uri"  is like the page you're trying to reach does not exist.

I have the same problem!, I have this uri and I'm authenticating with token in basic auth.

Postman returns null for uri 404, and I don't know what is missing...

Hello Julia,

Personnaly, I did it with curl, like this, and this is working just fine: 

curl -H 'Content-Type:multipart/form-data' -u $USERNAME:'$PASSWORD' -F 'file=@${IMPORT_FILE}' https://${JIRA_URL}/rest/raven/1.0/import/feature?projectKey=${PROJECT_KEY}


Just be sure that the user is defined in Jira, and that should do it
