We have been using test rail for a while now and throughout the company other departments have started picking up the tool and making their own unique projects with various field configurations.
Since upgrading to 5.2 (we skipped the 5.1 update) we would like to utilize the test case template feature.
In doing so we have come across a problem whereby we’re unable to create more than one custom field that uses the “steps” function.
The error: “This custom field type can only be added once and there is already a custom field for this type.” appears.
We are looking at revising the template structure for those projects using different fields. Essentially recreating the test case templates and making the steps column shared across multiple projects, making the ‘steps’ custom field the only common custom field used across the projects.
This fix is still not ideal as we can only have one default test case template. I have already added a +1 comment to a recent post in reference to this specific problem.
The templates are a great addition but if we cannot find a solution that fits our various project configurations when using the steps field it’d be a real shame as it seems our teams would really benefit from having this flexibility.
I’d be interested to hear any feedback on this.
