Xray Cloud: BDD Step Library seemingly not updating as Cucumber steps added.


Under Testing Board > Configure Product > Xray Settings > BDD Step Library

It states "Whenever BDD steps are created or modified, Xray will index the steps to be displayed in a BDD library. Indexing will process all steps from a given test (or precondition) and store them in a BDD library."

Also it states "A reindex operation of the BDD steps will be triggered as a background task when step index heuristics are changed."


The expectation that I have is that if I write a Cucumber test, and click the checkmark, that my Cucumber steps should automatically populate the BDD Step Library.

Further, I expect that if I change the heuristics, that all my Cucumber tests will be reindexed and any 'missing' Cucumber steps will be added to the BDD Step Library.


Are my expectations incorrect? Am I missing something? Is there a bug? Do we need an update?

After some experimentation I learned that Keyword case sensitivity seems to matter.

  1. Given ✅

  2. And ✅

  3. When ✅

  4. Then ✅

  5. GIVEN ❌

  6. AND ❌

  7. WHEN ❌

  8. THEN ❌

We have the same issue with steps not being updated and it is not due to case sensitivity :(
