Interfacing with Redmine



We’ve set up our TestRail to interface with Redmine - so far that simply means when we fail a test, we can “Add” a bug which opens a Redmine tracker issue page for population.

Question 1: I’m not sure what the “Push” option does, although the number of fields available are much less - can you explain please?

Quesiton 2: What other ways of interfacing with Redmine are available? For example, is there a way to link a atest to a User Story, via a test case?



Hello Sarah,

Thanks for your posting. The Push feature basically allows you to add a new issue to Redmine directly from TestRail’s user interface:

The Push integration can be configured as follows:

To integrate with User Stories, you can use the References features (which basically allows you to add one or more references/requirements/user stories to your test cases):

I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have any further questions.




Well our very clever system administrator here has figured it all out for the Push feature, and now we can create new bugs with the test reference, and a hyperlink on the Test Run to Redmine. This is really good!

Next thing is to integrate with User Stories…



Thanks for the update, Sarah. Great to hear that it works now. Please let me know in case you have any further questions.



OK - our system administrator has now set it up so we can input defect numbers or user stories IDs from Redmine and it creates URL’s to navigate between the 2 systems. Brilliant :slight_smile:

My developer team colleagues are very impressed with TestRail (they didn’t like the other test tool we used to use.)
