Writing Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) test cases is easy. Zephyr Scale allows you to create a BDD test case in Jira and export it to a feature file. The feature file can be used as a reference for writing unit tests that are necessary for it to run.

BDD test cases are written in Gherkin syntax. Here is a list of supported and not supported keywords:
