Adding Meta Data to Test Runs: Phones tested


#1

Hi,

We’re a mobile app company and we frequently test across many different phones. Is there a way to add meta data to a test run which lists which phones / OS versions were tested? Since there are so many phones (we have over 50), using configuration seems a bit awkward.

Thanks.

Hello!

Yes, you can additional details/meta data to the test run description (this will also be supported with runs in test plans starting with the next version). For important details such as the phone/OS/platform you test against, we can also recommend appending this directly to the test run name. Using configuration would be preferred though, as TestRail would then automatically create a separate test run for each configuration:

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
