Sections and subsections



I’m using Python script to extract sections name from TestRail. I’m quite new to extractions of test cases from TestRail using Python script but in Sections API is the a difference between sections and subsections?

For further explanations my project looks something like this:

Test project

  • Test plan
    – Test run
    — Section
    — Section
    ---- Sub-section
    – Test run
    — Section


Hi Lilja,

Thanks for your post! The sections API wouldn’t have a separate method for subsections, and you would be able to identify a subsection if it includes a parent_id in the response when using the get_section and get_sections methods. You would also be able to create a subsection using the add_section method by including the parent_id request field. Hope this helps!
