How to copy a test case to same suite without copying it's specific custom field?


Currently we have some strategies change on how we mapping the test cases with Automation scripts, and we will create 1 custom field and put a unique ID in that field. But we found that if users do copy the cases around in suite, the same value in that custom field will also been copied, which makes it not unique in the test suite. Is there any idea how to copy a test case without copying the value of certain custom fields?

Thank you.


Hi Harrison,

Thank you for the post. TestRail would automatically copy all fields and their values. This is normal behavior. You would have to manually change these values if you did not want them to remain the same.
