How can we delete a Test Suite?


#1

Hi ,

I tried to go to the Test Suite (which i want to delete) and clicked on the Edit button. I do not see any delete option.
Can you please let me know how can we delete a Test suite.

Does it not show in the highlighted area above? If not - then I would think the issue would be permissions.

It does not show the highlighted area. I have admin permission. So i do not know what additional permission i need.
Does it require any kind of a UI script ?


#4

No - it is part of Test Rail. If you pull up your account in Test Rail and click on the Access tab - the “This user is an administrator” is checked?

Hi Kmehta,

Good to hear that it’s working now :slight_smile: The administrator status is independent of the permissions and roles used for the projects and you can even hide projects or make them read-only for administrators. So, cases like these are usually always based on the configuration of the permissions and roles but glad to hear that you found it already.

Cheers,
Tobias
