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.
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.
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.
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:
