[Xray] How do people manage multiple Test versions


In our business we rely heavily on having multiple versions of the same Test available at all time, because we support multiple designs of that same product in the field. We group these Tests in functional "Test Sets". After every point release we mass-clone all of these sets (in total of 500+ Test Cases) so we save a snapshot matching the design of that branch/version.

At the start of the week we might plan a regression Test Cycle targeting 'UI design 1.0' for platform Alpha, another Test Cycle for 'UI design 3.0' on the same platform (rolled out in another country) and we plan a sprint regression cycle targeting the master design (to become 4.0)

I wonder if others might have found a more elegant approach for Test Version Control. e.g. one Test Case that supports multiple designs/versions? The mass-cloning necessity is prone to cause resource issues at some point.

Hi @Lucas Molenaar 

I would advise you to first read this article from Xray documentation about Test Versioning:

Xray D.C. & Server:

Xray Cloud:

And Please contact Xray Support ( afterward if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

It seems this is not supported by Xray, thank you for confirming @Rogério Paiva - Xray Xporter . This means we need to fallback to mass-cloning every 6 weeks, too bad, but it is as it is

Hi @Lucas Molenaar 

Xray can handle Test versioning; what happens is that it might not be a copycat version of other products, so it will be necessary some adaptation to the way it can be done in Xray.

Please contact Xray Support ( so that we can understand your use case and help you further.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Thank you @Rogério Paiva - Xray Xporter , I contacted your support department and they confirmed my statement. Having multiple versions of one Test available for planning and execution is NOT supported. if you want that you need to clone Tests
