Export of All Test Case information via reports


#1

Hi - is it possible export all test cases in the system via the reporting function rather than by project? The only way i can see to get all information out is to do a report 1 project by another. Any ideas. My other option is to use the java API but not sure whether they would allow it.

Hi Martin,

The reports are intended to be more focused as too much information can make them less useful. That said, if you are looking to pull large amounts of info, particularly across projects, it would be best to use the TestRail API.

If you do run into any rate limiting with your requests, you should get the 429 along with the message “API Rate Limit Exceeded - 180 per minute maximum allowed” and a “Retry-After” header. You can then parse the “Retry-After” header to automatically retry the API request after the specified number of seconds.
