Test case ID's not updating/ changed after exporting and importing


I created few test cases in a test suite and I had to copy the same test cases to a different test suite. When I do that, all the case ID’s change and my referenced ID’s in the documentation does not get updated to the new ID’s.

Is there a solution for this ?


When you copy you create copies of the test cases with new case ids which breaks any referencing. Move is the only option if the test case(s) have to be there but you could reference the Test Cases in any test case within the same project by using the [CXXXXX] format and it will create a link to the specified case.

The link would look like the one below:
It is a link so you would click on the link to pull up the test cases with its data/attachments/screenshots etc…
