Description error with Cucumber import api even after the Description was made made optional


Hello all,

I am trying to import a feature file into XRAY in order to create a new Cucumber test in XRAY.

When using the import cucumber tests in XRAY cloud V2,

I get the following error- 

{ "error": "Description is required."}

In order to resolve this, the description was made optional for tests in our Xray project. 

Yet I get the same error.

Note- Bearer token was generated using client id and password which was used for the authorization in the import cucumber tests api.


Any help regarding this would be appreciated.

Hi @Suchismita Ganiga 

If the Description is already optional, it is necessary to analyze the file and how you are using the REST API to make sure that everything is being executed as expected by the App.

Please contact the Xray Support ( so that we can request additional information and help further.

Kind regards,
Rogério Paiva [Xray Support Team]
