MySQL utf8mb4 support (emojis)


It seems TestRail doesn’t support utf8mb4 encoding on MySQL DB. The result is that I cannot insert emojis. It always fails with an “Incorrect string value” error. We should never use utf8 encoding on MySQL, but always use utf8mb4:

Any plans to resolve this issue?


Hello @kalpik,

Thanks for posting. I wanted to ask if you are using TestRail Cloud or TestRail Server?

I’m on the testrail server.
