How to link one case to another

If i have one test case which is somehow link to another case. How i can do it ?

You can link a case description with another (or other entity) by adding [Cxxx] to a richt text field (where xxx is the id of the related case)

Check:
https://www.gurock.com/testrail/docs/user-guide/getting-started/tips
at “Rich-text formatting”.

But be aware, it is not a dynamic link if you want to create sequences.
From within a test (instance of the first case) you will still link to the case description of the second on. Means, on adding a result for test 1 you will be reditrected to the case decription of 2 if clicking on the link.

Thanks kwirth.

If i add [Cxxx] in a reference field of one test case, it does not link to another test case.

But if add [Cxxx] in a Description field of one test case, it does link to another test case.

Yeah, as mentioned in the referred doc, it is just available in Text fields.

The reference Field is used for integration purposes only.
