JIRA XRAY - problems authenticating



I'm trying to import an xml report to Jira xRay - to a Test Execution item.

The documentation I can find makes reference to client_id and client_secret, which should be generated by Create API key. Create API key only generates one string, a token.

As such I can't figure out how to use just the token to submit the xml report.

For example, this command:

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST --data @"cloud_auth.json"

I can't use it, as it needs client_id and client_secret. Also, the endpoint itself returns 

Cannot GET /api/v2/authenticate


Using this command:

curl -H "Content-Type: text/xml" -X POST -H "Authorization: Bearer $token"  --data @"data.xml"


results in "{"error":"Invalid JWT: JsonWebTokenError: jwt malformed"}"


Please can anyone help?

Hi @Adam Grzegorzewski 

This only happens when the token is not correctly stored/sent in the request.

Ensure that the token is exactly as returned by the authentication API, without linefeeds or any other character that does not exist in the returned token.

If you need further help, please contact Xray Support ( to help further.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
