Are test cases IDs ever reused?


In TestRail, are test case IDs ever reused?

For example, if I delete a test case, will the same test case ID ever be used again for a new test case?

Our Automation Team would like to use test case ID as a unique identifier but we want to make sure that they are never used more than once for a single test case.



Hello David,

Thanks for your posting! Yes, the IDs are unique in TestRail and are never reused. This applies to test cases as well as all other entities (tests/results/run/plan/milestone/project etc.).

I hope this helps!
