Embed and render webpage into a custom field


#1

Hi

We’re wanting to reference an external database that hold verbose results of a test case.
We can currently add a link to the custom field… buth this requires the user to press and then goto that webpage.

so we would like to know if you have go a UI script that allow the render of webpages if it finds html.

This way the use does not need to launch extra pages… one stop shop .

Thanks

IAN

Hello Ian,

Thanks for your posting. We usually recommend using the References field to reference additional test case related details, e.g. requirements or user stories. This has the advantage that you can use the full range of related features, such as the reference report and reference URL integration:

That said, I believe it would also be possible to integrate/display the extra information directly in TestRail (e.g. via a UI script as you mentioned + iframe maybe) but we currently don’t have an example for this unfortunately. We are happy to help in case you want to try implementing this and please let me know in case you have any questions or feedback along the way.

Regards,
Tobias
