How to use the 'select configuration' in test plan


Hi, I am starting to use Testrail, and I am setting up some test plans and cases.

When i setup a test plan and load a tset suite into test plan, i find a button about ‘select configuration’ on this suite. I don’t know the function about it and how can i use this. Do you have some user guide about this part?



Hi Huiqing,

Thanks for your posting. Configurations allow you to start multiple test runs for a test suite at the same time, so you could test a suite against multiple web browsers and operating systems for example. You can learn more about configurations in TestRail’s online help by clicking the Help link in the upper right corner of TestRail’s user interface (topic Getting Started). Just let me know if you have any further questions about this.
