Zephyr for Jira Cloud exposes its data via a REST API which allows you to access the data programmatically and build your own integrations. You can use the API to:

  • Integrate with test automation tools.

  • Integrate with continuous integration tools.

  • Create extensive custom reports for testing.

  • Integrate with business intelligence tools.

  • Use the testing data for other purposes.

For example, you could build an integration that would create a test in a separate tool/system and add it to Zephyr for Jira Cloud or create an test execution cycle and update the status of a test execution run after its has been executed in an automation tool.

Info

To create, run, and manage Test Automation jobs, use the Test Automation API instead.

Info

Previously, to access Zephyr for Jira Cloud REST API you had to install an additional plugin (ZAPI). As of August 2020, the API is available out-of-the-box, and the ZAPI plugin is no longer needed.

Reference

Interactive API documentation is available at the following link, along with code examples for cURL, C#, JavaScript, Python, and other languages.

https://zfjcloud.docs.apiary.io

The API provides the following capabilities:

  • Get information about users, projects, releases, tests, execution cycles.

  • Create new tests and test execution cycles.

  • Update tests, test execution status.

  • Add attachments to existing execution cycles.

  • Run ZQL queries and retrieve search results.

Base URL

The base URL for API calls is:

Code Block
https://prod-api.zephyr4jiracloud.com/connect

For example, POST /public/rest/api/1.0/attachment means a POST request to https://prod-api.zephyr4jiracloud.com/connect/public/rest/api/1.0/attachment.

Authentication

The API uses JWT tokens for authentication. All requests must include the following headers:

Code Block
zapiAccessKey: YOUR_ACCESS_KEY
Authorization: JWT GENERATED_JWT_TOKEN

where:

  • YOUR_ACCESS_KEY is the access key found in the API Keys section of Zephyr for Jira Cloud.

  • GENERATED_JWT_TOKEN is the JWT token generated for this specific request. To learn how to generate JWT tokens, see this page.

Info

JWT tokens are generated using several pieces of information, including the API endpoint you want to call, and query parameters (if any). This means that to call multiple different endpoints or call the same endpoint but with different query parameters you must generate a new JWT token for each API call.

JSON requests

Most operations that accept a request body expect it in the JSON format.

POST and PUT request containing a JSON request body must include the Content-Type header:

Code Block
Content-Type: application/json

Rate limits

  • 1,000 requests per hour.

  • 24,000 requests per day.

Remarks

  • There are pagination limits.

  • Encoding affects status character counts.
