TestRail Released

TestRail has been released today with fixes for the following issues:

  • Push defect from anywhere functionality re-enabled (we discovered that ALL attachments were being sent to the integrated tool, and disabled it for a period to prevent this from happening).
  • When using a defect plugin and then hovering over Defect IDs in TestRail, IDs which included a hyphen (such as Jira IDs) were not being retrieved.
  • When hovering a reference plugin and then hovering over a Reference ID, users were seeing a “User does not have a valid OAuth connection” error after the 6.4 release, as reported here.
  • In some situations where the Separated Steps field was deleted by an administrator, and recreated at a later time, Fast Track editing could cause the deletion of a test case’s separated steps.

Using Assembla?

If you have TestRail integrated with Assembla, please update your Defect and Reference View URLs to:

If your Assembla instance is located in the EU, please use (instead of…)

Complete integration documentation can be found here.
