XRAY Performance and Scalability with JIRA


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.
