Scheduled/Remote Access to Test Suite XML Export



I’m wondering is there a way to access the export xml details of a Test Suite. I want to take the xml details on a daily basis, and using the assumption that some custom fields will define a java test class, I’d like to generate a junit test suite from the testrail xml format. I’d execute the junit test suite and then report the test results via the mini API. I’m just unsure how i can extract the xml details for the test suite from testrails.




Thanks for your posting. There’s currently no way to automatically “schedule” XML exports or similar. However, you could alternatively use our extended API to query and access the test case + suite details programmatically and this would likely be a good fit for your needs. Have you seen our extended API yet? If not I’m happy to email you the documentation + installation files.
