How to use custom Bugzilla plugin on a Cloud TestRail instance


We are using the Cloud TestRail and would like to add some BZ fields to the Push dialog. I understand this can be achieved by creating a custom BZ plugin. However first step is copy the default to /custom/defects/. Since you host our instance in the cloud, how do I access that location?


Hi Cristina,

Thanks for the post. Unfortunately, TestRail Cloud does not currently support editing or creating new custom defect plugins. These types of customizations would require direct access to the server file system and installation files, which are not available through cloud installations for security and stability purposes. In order to create or customize your own defect plugins you would need to use a TestRail Server installation.

I hope that clarifies things.

clear but disappointed :frowning:
