TestRail 6.5.5 Released

TestRail has been released with DB query performance improvements

  • Various database queries on which the TestRail views, summaries, dashboards, reports etc. rely have been improved to make them more performant.

See my comment on the 6.5.3 post. Does this version fix the following error occurring when attempting to Push a Defect to Jira?

Error: “Form field “component” does not specify a field type.”

Anyone on this thing?

Hi @steven.ogran,

Thanks for the follow-up. The error you are receiving is due to a slight change in the integration for Jira. To resolve the issue, simply change the ‘component’ field to ‘components’ (adding the ‘s’). You can find additional details and related screenshot here.

Hope this helps,
