Xray Test Execution start time changed with every import

We are using Xray Test Executions to trigge jenkins pipelines for remote and scheduled test executions. The results are put together in a cucumber.json that we import into Xray once the test is finished.

While importing however the "started on" Field is overwritten with the current time completely ignoring the value of the "start_timestamp" in the .json file.

This results in all our tests having a runtime of 0 seconds which completely wrecks our statistics.

We would like to see the actual time we startetd the test and not the latest refresh.

Hi @Simon-Sebastian Schreiner 

Unfortunately, the Cucumber JSON format does not provide dates for the start and finish of the scenarios.
So what we're currently doing is using the current date, assuming that the trigger (i.e., the moment whenever you submit the results) corresponds to the moment whenever they were run; in most cases, these dates will match. However, there can be a slight difference between the real start date and the "Started on" date shown on the screen; concerning the finish date, it's not accurate because currently, we don't take into account the sum of the duration of all steps.

Alternatively, you may use the Cucumber multipart endpoint. The information of the Start and Finish dates will be sent in a second file where you can set the values to Test Execution custom fields. So you're able to define the start and finish dates for the related Test Execution. For this, you would need to obtain the starting and finished dates in the CI side, to pass them into the task for submitting the cucumber multipart results.

If you have any additional questions you can reach out to our support for further investigation.

Best regards,

Team Xray
