Certifying/Approving a Test Run or Milestone


I know that I can close a test run or a Milestone, but I’m looking at using milestones that perhaps correlate to a completed phase of development or similar and am wondering if anyone has defined a way in which to use TestRail to identify an “Approval” of a Milestone, rather than, or as well as, Closing the Milestone?

Any thoughts?


Hi there!

While TestRail doesn’t have a specific field for this, you could include approval details in the milestone’s description field or ‘tag’ the milestones via an [Approved] ‘tag’ in the milestone title before you close it. We also plan to review adding support for milestone custom fields in the future.
