Creating general test setup documents

We have a number of tests that will need identical setup of a utility program.

Is there a way to have a general configuration document (ex. setting up apache) that is linked to all test cases that would need to reference it?

P.S. This is my first (of hundreds) question on the forum.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the post and welcome to the TestRail discussion forum!

It would be possible to link a file to your test cases or projects. Many text fields within TestRail support Markdown formatting which would allow you to link to a file uploaded to TestRail or located on another server accessible by your team.

For example, inside a project’s list of test cases, you can edit the Description of a section and include a link to a document in the description using Markdown:

You can also use this same method to place links inside text fields of test cases, project descriptions, and other areas in TestRail.

I hope this helps!
