Section permissions


I would like my team to be able to create test cases but not be able to add sections, since I want to be able to have control on the structure of the testcases. Is this possible?


Looking at the permissions in the Roles - cases and sections are covered together and not separately so it looks like this is not possible currently.


Hi Patricia,

Thanks for your post! Currently it wouldn’t be possible to separate this permissions as they’re included within a single permission in TestRail. It often makes sense to also allow the ability to modify sections if you’d be creating/modifying test cases as well, but we understand that some teams would also prefer to disable this for sections only. We’re happy to review making this permission more granular as a feature request.

Hope this helps!
