Test cases not associated with a milestone


Hi, am using testrail’s api to pull out testcases and tests, however am always getting null for the milestone_id even though the tests are assigned to a test run thats assigned to a specific milestone. Shouldn’t tests inherit the milestone_id from the test run?


Hi @abugado,

Thanks for your posting. The milestone attribute on the case level is independent of the milestones for test runs & tests/results. Milestones on the case level are disabled by default (the field can be enabled on Administration > Customizations) but can be used to track the milestone/version a case was introduced, for example. This differs from the milestone on the test run level which are used to link tests & results to specific milestones, releases or versions.

I hope this helps!
