Hierarchy for Test Suites


#1

Hello Gurock company and Tobias!

  1. Thanks for greate tool!
  2. I have the following question:

It will be great creation hierarchy for Test Suites. For example:

“Name_root_test_suite” -> “Test_suite1” (with test cases), “Test_suite2” (with test cases), “Test_suite3” (with test cases)

On this moment we have 1 root test suite and sub-suites (“Test_suite1” (with test cases) + “Test_suite2” (with test cases) + “Test_suite3” (with test cases)) are Sections inside root test suite. In cases if we have > 2000 test cases test suite is loaded a great while.

What do you mean about this? I mean that hierarchy for Test Suites is very practical, usable and comfortable resolution :slight_smile:

BR,
Vassily

Hello Vassily,

Thanks for your posting and sorry for the delayed response. We recommend using sections for organizing and grouping test cases instead. For larger test suites we also recommend switching to the compact view mode which displays only one section and not the entire test suite (similar to how file browsers work, such as Windows Explorer) which makes the page very fast. You can switch between view modes via the yellow icons in the toolbar of a test suite.

Using few test suites (or even a single test suite) has several advantages with regards to running tests, test case management and filtering as well as reporting and this is the recommended approach. It is also planned to improve the test suite and run pages further as part of a larger UI redesign update.

Regards,
Tobias

NP, Tobias. Hello! :slight_smile:

Yes, it’s decision. Not very comfortable, but… For example we have on this moment for one test suite 20 sections and in every section 5-10 subsections. It’s really large test suite with >2000 test-cases.

In any cases - thanks.

When do you plan these improvements? :slight_smile: In next releases or next year?

PS: TestRail is ideal tool for me and our QA team, and many thanks for it. we bought it.

Hello Vassily,

Great to hear that you enjoy working with TestRail, that’s appreciated. :slight_smile: We don’t have a concrete time frame for these features currently but the UI updates have a higher priority for us and it is planned to look into this for one of the next larger updates.

Tobias
