How do I create Test cycles in XRAY . We have Test cycle option in RQM and Zephr, how is this in XRA


I would like to understand how test cycles can be created in XRAY. Do you have an explicit method ( in that case, can you please share the link) or 

Eg: In RQM we have Timelines section , where one can  specify the details of the Iteration -> Release -> Cycles. These are reflected in Test plan -> Test schedules as Iterations where  we give the information about the test cycle or release. So under one test plan I can have multiple test cycles and releases.

If I am migrating from RQM to XRAY, where would I specify these test cycles/release details. What approach do you suggest.

Appreciate your reply and also any related document links for reference.


Thank you,

Hi @Preethi Srinivasan  ,

just to add some additional information. 

The concepts are a bit different between Xray and Zephyr.

Xray is more Agile friendly, IMO.

Please have a look at the following page on a migration utility that we have that helps migrating data from Zephyr to Xray, and that details the mapping of concepts:


If it is still not clear, please let me know.
