XRAY Performance and Scalability with JIRA

pdixit_84 June 22, 2022

I am currently evaluating XRAY Test Case Management app for JIRA and comparing it enterprising tools like qTest. Couple of major concerns being raised with JIRA app like XRAY are Performance and Scalability issues.

Based on research, I have made following assumption:

"XRAY lacks built in storage and it relies on JIRA database to store the data it manages or creates. Hence, XRAY cause significant performance issues with JIRA Server and JIRA Data Centre. (Not sure about JIRA Cloud ??).  As the test cases, test run, test results and other artifacts accumulate, the entire JIRA instance might become increasingly vulnerable to performance degradation, might crash JIRA and impact every JIRA users including non testers."

 

My questions are:

  • Is above assumption is correct?
  • Has anyone seen any performance issue with XRAY app for JIRA?

Feel free to share any thoughts on this

In our organisation, there might be ~1500 JIRA users but only ~200 Testers would be using the XRAY. There will be 1000s of test cases and so performance will be a key criteria to make a decision.

 

Thanks

Prashant

Hi @pdixit_84 

If you are still evaluating test management tools, you can check out AIO Tests - Test Management for Jira.

We are one of the few test management tools that do not treat test entities like cases, executions, cycles, runs, etc. as Jira issues. This approach helps us provide a more seamless and intuitive way of test management.

Our architecture doesn’t adjust Jira to behave as a test management system but creates a unique coupling to offer the benefits of both.

Here is a link to our documentation. If you would like a demo, please contact us through our support portal.

@Sergio Freire - Xblend Please review our guidelines for Marketplace and Solution Partners , specifically: 

  • Identify yourself as a partner: Make sure the user is aware you are affiliated with a partner company; for example, by placing the name of your company in your user name in {curly brackets} or -dashes-  and 
  • No linking to your product site or blog

Please disclose your association to the marketplace app you've linked and update your profile

@Saralie S. respectfully I don't agree with this decision and removing my answer as it was informative for the user. While my answer was removed, another one from another marketplace vendor/partner was left behind, that doesn't answer the original and only promotes their product, giving a set of commercial links; this doesn't make sense whatsoever to me, especially if we are concerning on helping users with the questions they have. I will comply with the existing guidelines that you mentioned from here onwards.

Note: I work for the Xray team for many years and I have helped many users in this community forum and outside of it.
