Question for TestRail Cloud


At Shiptrack, we are currently testing your product. We have installed your server version on one of our machines with IIS. We have created a button to launch automated tests. To do this we put trigger.php file that calls a batch file that launches a RobotFramework test and the result is returned in TestRail. Everything works fine, but we want to use your Cloud TestRail. Is it possible to call an automated test from your cloud version. If this is possible our company will take a subscription to Testrail for several years to come.


Hi there,

Thanks for the post! It is still possible to use the trigger example/approach with a TestRail Cloud account. You can place the server-side trigger script on the server where you would like to execute/run the tests on (usually on your private network). TestRail would not need to be able to connect to your server, as the connection/glue is made via the UI script in TestRail and via your web browser. You can also write the server-side script in any other programming language and our script is only an example.


Thank you for your reply,

On the other hand, would you have an example that will represent a TestRail Cloud call to another machine that has IIS to install and that allows to unzip a trigger.php script to launch my automated tests.
