I am fairly new to API testing, moreover API automated testing. I am familiar with manual testing in Postman Pro and running test collections with Postman Runner. I am also familiar with running collections using Newman from Postman API Collections endpoint and from a JSON file.
What is the best approach and software tools to use to update Xray Test Cases or and Xray Test Execution in Jira with my Postman test results. Furthermore, if there are any code examples (Python etc.), it will be greatly appreciated.
Hi Rohan Russell,
If you want to update Test Executions or Test issues in Xray, you can use Xray's built-in REST API.
From our understanding, you need to get visibility of the automated tests implemented in Postman.
From Newman's Github project page, it seems that it is able to generate a JUnit XML report. https://github.com/postmanlabs/newman#junitxml-reporter-options
Thus, you can use it to submit the results to Xray by invoking the REST API for the submission of JUnit results (either the standard or the multipart variant), as detailed here: https://confluence.xpand-addons.com/display/XRAY/Import+Execution+Results+-+REST
You may want to give a look at this page (https://confluence.xpand-addons.com/display/XRAY/Integrating+with+Testing+Frameworks) which has some tutorials related with with automated testing, including JUnit and its capabilities.

following the instructions I get an 415 Unsupported Media Type when trying to post the test executions report in JUnit following a CLI newman run with reporter as junit.
XML/Text or XML/Application in the Content-Type makes no difference.
When I do the import manually from the UI, I do not have any issues.
Help would be appreciated
