How to take database snapshot of Testruns


I have around 4000 cases in my testrun. And due to sheer number of cases, I am unable to export the testrun in a CSV for per field test plan analysis. It says network failure after downloading 4GB.
How can I take a database snapshot of the testrun. It can be any DB format - mysql, csv, excel, etc.

Looking forward to some suggestions.


I would use the API (, specifically the get_tests API call, to get the list of tests for the test run. It will be returned as an array of JSON objects, which you can then parse and write to a CSV file.


Thank you so much! This helps immensely.
