Preserve TestResults


#1

Hi,

We have created test cases in TestRail under TestSuite 1 , executed the cases and Test results are added in TestRail. Now I want to move Test Cases into different suites to well maintain. I am loosing the Test Results when I move the cases from one place to another. Is there a way to preserve the history when Test cases are moved.
If not, Please provide me the alternative solution for my issue.

Thanks,
Hema

Hi Hema,

Thanks for your posting. If you restructure/move/delete cases, the results in all active runs are removed because a run is always linked to the same test suite. You can, however, close your runs/plans before moving your cases and this will archive the results and changes to the cases or suite don’t affect closed runs/plans:

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Tobias
