We’ve new to TestRail and have most of our test cases entered. We’re not starting to look at automation. One of our developers is going to work on the service for our end. The software we are using does a lot of calculations and results are in a SQL server database
The database will contain master date which is the expected results.
One test case, involves the tester creating a new job and doing a bunch of steps with it. We then want the tester to click a button that will (compare values in the new job create with the master). However, the job number is auto generated, so will not be known in advance. We typically enter it in the Actual Results. other test will need to pass other references to objects in the application (e.q. quote no, PO No, invoice no,)
So how would I call our service and pass one of these parameters? I looked at the API and all I see is
function execute_test($run_id, $case_id, $test_id)
I somehow need a place to enter, for example, a job no, quote no, PO No, invoice no to be comapred against the master data
