TestRail 6.0.1 Released

TestRail has been released today with fixes for the following issues, mostly related to the 6.0 release and TestRail’s UI updates:

  • While in FastTrack View (3-pane view mode), users were experiencing a UI crash when adding a test result then clicking on the ‘History & Context’ or ‘Defects’ tab of the test.
  • With TestRail installed locally on Windows Server, some users encountered an ODBC driver error when editing test results.
  • Users were unable change the order of columns when creating reports.
  • A few minor UI styling issues were related to the dark theme and responsive design.
  • The TestRail for Jira add-on was missing the ability to expand test details within Jira issues.
  • The TestRail for Jira add-on’s dashboard reports were not loading the necessary CSS files.
  • The Bitbucket defect plugin was no longer working due to changes in Bitbucket’s API. This has been updated accordingly.
  • Prior to TestRail 6.0, wide markdown tables would overlap data in TestRail’s UI. A horizontal scrollbar has been added to address this.
  • Prior to TestRail 6.0, editing the latest test result was not updating associated test run/plan statistics.

My current version: .

and we are connected to JIRA. So just wanted to confirm that, this is a mandatory update ?

Hi Krishna,

No TestRail update is mandatory. However, if you are using TestRail 6.0.0, we would strongly recommend updating to the 6.0.1 version, as this does address multiple bugs including those which affect your Jira integration.

Since there are no database changes associated with this update, the update itself should be very quick and simply require you to update your TestRail files.


Thanks for the confirmation :blush:
