My team is currently evaluating testrail in order to see if we can use it instead of testlink.
In order to do so we need to transfer testlink IDs into Testrail.
I have searched the internet and found that there is no way to change the test cases IDs.
Therefore, I’ve added a custom field of ‘testlink_id’ to the testcases and updated them through a script I’ve found online by one of the developers.
My question is, since this id is also unique, is it possible to use the API (e.g: add_result_for_case) using this custom fieldname as an identifier instead of using the builtin ‘case_id’?
We are also currently using a site (on the cloud) as the server but we are planning on moving it to a local server - is it possible that the IDs will remain the same? (or will it start from 0 again)
