Thanks for your message. We have converted the three fields ‘preconditions’. ‘steps’ and ‘expected results’ to custom fields in TestRail 1.3 to make the forms more flexible so that you can customize them with the new version.
This means that these fields are now included in the tag in the XML file, so the data is still there, just in a slightly different format (we don’t usually introduce such breaking changes, but we had to do it in this rare case).
To resolve this, there are two easy ways to do it:
Make sure that you export the data from an 1.3 installation if you want to import it into a 1.3 system. Exported files from TestRail 1.3 will work as usual. If you have a hosted trial and want to upgrade to 1.3, feel free to email us and we will update your trial. If you have a local trial installation, also feel free to email us and we will provide you with the upgrade instructions.[/]
Alternatively we can also convert your exported data files to the new format. If you want us to covert he files, please just email us the exported files to contact (at) gurock.com.[/*]
Regarding the milestone: we haven’t changed this field, so it should import correctly. Please note that you need to create a milestone with the same name before importing the cases, as the milestones are not automatically created.
