Automation: Test progress status when automation is initiated



Is it possible to add test progress status button when user trigger automation. I am able to trigger automation with “Start test” button as given in example script. Now suppose if I have started 5 tests, is there any progress indication (like 2 out of 5 tests are executed)?


Hi @GES,

Thanks for your posting! That’s not really possible because the tests are triggered in the background and the trigger script just waits for the script to finish. We would also usually recommend triggering tests outside of TestRail and this would be more flexible than doing this inside TestRail.
