Print selected section test cases instead of printing the whole suite


#1

I would like to print out selected section of test cases, however Print contain all test cases from the suite.

Is it possible to print out only selected section?

BR,
Vladimir.

Hi Vladimir,

Thank you for your post. TestRail would in fact include all test cases when using the print option. In this case it is possible to leverage the TestRail API to pull only the test cases that you are wanting. You could then use that output to create your list of test cases.

We do actually have quite a few customers that use the API this way to pull only relevant test data.

Would prefer not to create another infrastructure tool to solve this problem, is it technically not possible to do and why does the filter not affect what is printed.

Could a custom report be created similar to the print option where we could select individual test cases, and print out all the fields in the test case.

Thanks
Rich

Hi Rich,

Thanks for your feedback. It’s still planned to look into this and support the same filtering and grouping options with the print view. Currently the print view will always include all test cases & sections.

Cheers,
Tobias
