I have looked at previous posts on these issues and am aware of your recommendations. However, our situation is a bit different.
Our company creates a diverse set of products. The test cases associated with these products are very different. Therefore, we created different projects in TestRail. Unfortunately, we have a client oriented group who often needs to perform test runs across multiple products for a single client or many clients within a single release cycle. They have no way to set up a single test run and pull cases from multiple projects. If they were to copy test cases, then they would be expanding the database by the thousands of cases. In addition, the maintenance on the separate test cases would be laborious.
If we re-architect to use a single project with multiple suites, we are faced with the problem of re-organizing existing multi-suite projects that already have test case sections built into each suite.
I’m looking for a win-win solution instead of a “lesser of two evils” solution. Do you have any plans to support linking test case copies OR to support nested test suites in the near future?
Thank You For Any Suggestions.
