Exporting Cucumber Tests

When exporting Cucumber feature files, the Export Cucumber Features rules are followed. The input for the export REST method is a String containing Jira issue keys separated by ";".

These keys must reference issues with the Xray issues types Test, Test Set, Test Execution or Test Plan or any issue type mapped to the Requirement issue type. 

A mix of these issue types is supported. In the same export call, you can include keys from each of the above issue types. The service will build a set of Test issues based on these keys. This set will include all direct Tests issues and all Test issues associated with either Test Sets, Test Executions or Test Plans matched and all the tests for the requirements matched.

The reference to keys in Jira will be necessary for importing back the execution results to the respective Test and Test Execution issues.

Returns the generated feature file(s) for the Tests matched by the input "keys" or/and by the input "filter" and by the input "fz".
