How attach files after an automated execution

A few weeks ago we purchased Zephyr Scale for Jira Cloud. I know how it works on Server version and now I implemented the cloud version for execution test, there I don't have any issues, however after an execution I can't upload files like the server version, where the url is like this "/testresult/{testResultId}/attachments" to post a file from a previous result. I'm trying to figure out how I can upload files, but checking the API information I could use " /automations/executions/custom" and I'm getting the following response:

 

{
"errorCode": 400,
"message": "Couldn't find any mapped test cases",
"status": "Bad Request"
}

 

 
How I can resolve this?
Are there any alternatives for cloud version to accomplish this? 

 

In this place for Server version I was able to upload files after an execution with "/testresult/{testResultId}/attachments", for example:

Re: How attach files after an automated execution

Hi @Ravenoslen ,

 

as far as I know, the cloud API does not allow for attachments to be added to test execution (you can't even update existing executions).

 

The "/automations/executions/custom" endpoint you mentioned is meant to be used for results in Zephyr Scale's custom format (see https://support.smartbear.com/zephyr-scale-cloud/docs/test-automation/junit-integration-custom.html), so this won't help you much, I guess.

 

I'm worried about this, because we are thinking about switching to cloud and uploading files to test executions is essential for any automated test.

 

Cheers

Josh

Hi @josh42 

 

Thanks for your feedback. I'm agree too, it's important upload files as an additional evidence for users, I don't know if smartbear will add that feature soon for Jira Cloud. In the other hand, as a workaround I'm thinking to upload those evidences in other repository and refer that information as a hyperlink in the comment section or upload those files in the main jira issue traced inside the test case, but the idea is doing inside the execution test.
