Move from SQL to MySQL



We’re looking at moving our existing TestRail system from using MSSQL to MySQL. Has anyone done this before? Is there any guidance for doing so?

Hi Jan,

Sure, happy to help. We have a tool that helps with the migration/conversion from SQL Server and MySQL and vice versa. It’s not possible/supported to use third-party tools because there may be small differences in how the schema is migrated. Please send a quick email to and we are happy to provide the tool & instructions.
