After a quick demo of Xray, it looks like a JIRA "issue" must be created for everything, i.e. a test case, test plan, test set, test execution, etc. Are current users finding this structure manageable when you have thousands of test cases for a single project/work effort?
Thank you Amrith! One follow-up question, they mention ways to organize your test cases with a test plan issue type and a test set issue type. i know what these things are outside of the tool but not sure the difference between them in xray? What different benefits they bring?
It’s same as Test management concepts. As an example , let’s say I have 10 test cases to test login functionality . I add these tests to a test set called login test suite.
now there is a new release for login in staging environment. I create a test plan and in this test plan I can import all tests from the test set.
When I am ready to execute I create a test execution and run all tests. If there is a quick fix for same release, a new execution can be created. More info

I have noticed that XRAY server is far more customisable in terms of reporting and management features. I reckon depends on person to person. Why not try both :)
We have also been using Xray Cloud version and I will say there are many features of Xray not available in the Cloud version and only available in the Server version. I would recommend looking at the user guide for Cloud vs. Server and comparing the different functionality (things like reports, built in JQL queries, etc.). They may or may not make a difference to your team, but for our team we have had to implement many workarounds as the functionality we needed was only available in Server not Cloud.
Missing deadlines is one of the biggest problems every team lead wants to avoid when dealing with managed services. When the customer contracts your company to help with IT services it is expected th...
