Project Profiles


We are using “project per version” method, while each product has it’s own project preferences (e.g. default template, custom fields, etc…).
The thing is, each time we initiate a new project, we must set all relevant preferences to it so it will not affect other projects and products.
Is there any option of having a project profile or at least ability to clone an entire project along with its customization options?


Hi Shimon,

Thanks for your posting. We would usually recommend using milestones and a single project to track and manage versions. TestRail has several versioning features and managing versions in a single project usually works best. You can reuse your test cases and project settings and this also makes it easy to compare different test runs over time using TestRail’s reports. You can find a good overview of TestRail’s versioning features here:
