Usage of test console on a productive system

Due to regulatory requirements, we need to do extensive validation tests for our productive system after each update of Jira or plugin.

We would like to program some automatic tests for this purpose.

Is it possible to use the test-console for unit-, integration- and system-tests, that is available in the Jira development environment, also on a productive system, so that we can use the same automatic testing concepts as for plugin development?
