Requirements links to testcases


Since this is a test case magagement tool, on e importan thing is to trace then or link them to requierements, is this possible?



Thanks for your posting. We don’t have a built-in requirement management module in TestRail, but you can link test cases to requirements stored in other tools via the References field:

You can for example link test cases to requirements stored in your tracker or Wiki software, for example. Adding a traceability/coverage report for test cases and references is also planned, but this could be added as a custom report in the meantime.



which Requirement Management Tool do you recommend?
Can you send a list of Requirement Management tools that TestRail can work with?

I didn’t find an example or a list of supported Requirement Management tools in any place in the documentation.
