How to bulk clone tests - Xray


I'm using Xray Test Management and i'm trying to clone several tests (bulk clone) from a project to another. I used "Deep Clone for Jira" but the test details were not cloned.

Any sugestion to solve this?

Thank you

Hi @Raquel Querido ,

I would recommend that you ask "Deep Clone for Jira" team support for that. Xray by itself doesn't provide that out-of-the-box.

If Deep Clone for Jira team need help they can reach out to Xray team to clarify how to make it happen.

Welcome to the community, @Raquel Querido . 

I am the product manager of Deep Clone for Jira.

Currently it is not possible to bulk clone Xray tests with Deep Clone for Jira.

As @Sergio Freire mentioned, it would still be helpful if you could contact our support. This helps us to prioritize and we could notify you once Xray is supported.

Hello @Marlene Kegel -codefortynine- , Is there any further progress on this? I have the same requirement as @Raquel Querido . 

Welcome to the community, @Lisa Ossanlow .

The requirements is on our radar and we're collecting interest from customers. Unfortunately the Xray integration would require a significant effort on our side, which is why we didn't have time to implement it yet.

We will certainly notify you in this thread if we make any progress on cloning Xray test steps with Deep Clone in the future.

@Marlene Kegel - codefortynine any progress on this? Our company also need to have a possibility to bulk clone xray tests in jira (including test steps). 

Sorry for the late reply, @Artūras Lipnickis. And welcome to the community.

Unfortunaltey I have nothing new to share. I will update this thread if we made progress on this.

Hi @Raquel Querido @Marlene Kegel - codefortynine 

Thankyou for the informative thread. 

In Zephyr Squad, when we Clone a Test case, it creates a Clone test case with a SEPARATE JIRA ID. I tried Clone Folder under Cycle Summary section where Original Folder had 10 test cases. In the Cloned folder that got created I observed that all the 10 test cases were Cloned with same Steps, BUT with same test cases IDs (those assigned by JIRA), same Status (In Progress/Closed). Meaning now I have two separate test cases with SAME JIRA IDs under two different Test Folders. This will be confusing when I will export & send the Test Execution Report to my team. Is there any work-around for this?

Hi @Raquel Querido , were you able to get an answer for your question regarding bulk cloning whole test plan(all details in it, all tests attached to it as well as all the test details within those tests) or bulk cloning the test tickets along with all its test details at the least? 

Hoping to hear back. Thank you.

Hello  @Raquel Querido 

Welcome to Atlassian Community....!!!

You can do bulk edit and move all issues together. Here are the general steps:

  • Search using a query that gives all the issues you want to move(in your case it would look something like project = MyProject AND type = Test)
  • Click on the tools on top right corner and select bulk edit
  • select all issues you want to edit and click next
  • Select Move Issues from listed options and click next
  • fill required information and Jira should start moving all selected issues

Since there is no undo option, I would recommend moving one or two issue first to see it is working as you expected before making any bulk changes.

Thank you Ganesh, but my question is about cloning (copy) several tests and not about edit and move.

That topics don't help in my case.

Ok...!!! @Raquel Querido I know something is their for bulk clone in server/dc variant of xray add-on. But let me check for cloud
