We recently installed TestRail, and we are in the process of configuring it to meet our project needs. There are a few issues we are facing:
We have not imported our test script library into Test Rail because there doesn’t seem to be a “pretty” way to export them back out individually. Currently, we pass all our test scripts off to a separate group of UAT testers in a Word/Excel format. When I try the export feature, it exports them all into 1 file, and is not very pretty looking. To go through and separate out each test case from the file and then somehow copy/paste it into individual files seems like it will be very time consuming. Is there a way to export out test cases into individual files that we are overlooking?
As a workaround to this, we were thinking of creating a “placeholder” test case, and just attaching in our Word/Excel test scripts into it. However, there doesn’t seem to be a way to bulk export attachments? You have to go to each test case, open it up, and download it. In addition, as a tester is running the script they would have to download the file, save it to their local, update it, and upload it back to Test Rail which seems a bit cumbersome and provides room for user error. We understand TestRail is not necessarily meant to work in this way, and best practices would be to convert all our test scripts (~300 in both Word and Excel format!)…however we are still faced with the export issue.
Any ideas or thoughts? I’ve also thought about pulling all the attachments from the attachments folder on the server, however we have multiple projects using this application and everyone’s attachments are stored in one folder on the server, and difficult to sift through.
