Possibility of linkification references to other test cases


#1

BugZilla offers the option of creating “linkifications” where by a specific formatting, such as BZ##### will generate an internal hyperlink to the BugZilla slip that it refers to.

Would TestRail have such a feature?

Hi Daniel,

Yes, you can link to other objects in TestRail via the [X###] syntax. ### would be the object ID and replace X with the entity you want to link to. Options are C, T, R, M, S (for cases, tests, runs/plans, milestones and suites). For example, to link to the case with ID 17, you can use [C17].

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Tobias

Would there be any plans to expand this feature, such as configurable mouseover quick previews for these referenced objects?

This would help me greatly in elaborating steps without having to duplicate their documentation


#4

Hi Daniel,

Yes, it’s planned to look into this and this would be similar to how the lookup for references & defects already work. We currently recommend opening such links in new tabs so you keep the current position/page.

Cheers,
Tobias
