How changing project configuration impacts closed test runs



I’ve read a lot in this forum about changing project configuration, but I can’t find does it impact the history of closed test plans and runs (results)? If a test run is closed, will it be saved even when the configuration changes?

Thanks in advance, it will help me make my choice.


Hi Bln,

Thank you for the post. Once you have closed a test run or test plan, TestRail archives (copies) those test cases. If you were to make changes to the original test cases, TestRail would only apply those changes to those test cases. The test cases/tests included in your closed test run/plan would not be effected at all. We do this to help with versioning of test cases in TestRail.
