New customization not taking effect on existing test cases


#1

We are just getting set up with TestRail and are using the default Expected Results field in test cases for a different purpose. We’ve already imported out test data into TestRail.

In admin, I see that I can customize the name of this field and have done so. The field is selected for all templates and for the current project, however when I open existing test cases it still contains the default value. When creating new test cases, I see the new field value.

Is there any way to have the customization apply to all existing instances of the field?

Thanks –

Hi Allen,

Thanks for your posting. Have you added a new Expected Result field or just relabeled the default one? Could you send a few screenshots to our help desk at contact@gurock.com so we can review this?

Cheers,
Tobias

Thanks for the quick response!

Yes, we renamed the existing Expected Result field since we had already imported our data into it. I will send screenshots to the help desk.
