Feature request: provide option to copy test steps (within same testcase)


Currently, I have a lot of teststeps which I would like to copy within same testcase. This is currently not possible in Testrail. Please provide an option as displayed below


Hi Mathijs - thanks for your suggestion. We have this in our list of feature requests and I’ve added your vote.


Reusing Test Steps

Count me as vote for this feature!
While I would not use it often, there are times where It is easier to create a new test step via copying and modifying an existing one.

Additionally, there are times when I wish I could create a “template” test step that I could use (invoke, call-out, whatever term you like) in multiple places in a test step and/or test cases, but that’s a different feature.


Hi Dan - thanks and I’ll add your vote.

As for template test steps, you’re right - it’s an entirely different feature - but one that is very much on my radar. Stay tuned for further developments in this regard!



We just started using Test Rail and I would like to see this feature (copying test steps) in future release, although as soon as possible. This will make our life as tester much easier. +1 vote from me for this feature.
