Role to manage customizations?


Is there a role or permission in TestRail that I can assign to an individual user to manage customizations, but not have full Administrator access?

Right now I have a custom field named sw_build, that I have to manually update when we get new builds, and I would like a couple of my testers to be able to manage it themselves without being Administrators.




Thanks for your posting. You currently always need administrator status to access the administration area and, in turn, to customize the custom fields and other customizations. It is already planned to look into making some aspects of the administration area more flexible, e.g. by adding special permissions to modify projects and/or customizations (I’ve just added another vote to this request, thanks!). There’s currently no workaround for this unfortunately if you don’t want to grant administrator status to the user.
