TestRail Released

TestRail has been released today for Cloud, Server & Docker versions of TestRail, with fixes for:

  • Error thrown when attempting to forget users in the admin console.
  • Performance issues when accessing attachments.

API Changes for TestRail Server

With TestRail 6.7.0, we implemented pagination for some bulk API endpoints. Please read our Forum post here for additional details. The API response structure for TestRail Server customers will change to be consistent with the pending changes in 6.7.

However, the 250 entity limit will be optional and can be enabled by an Administrator under Site Settings > API:

To preview and plan for these changes, a Server administrator should enable the pagination as shown in the screenshot above, and your API requests must also include the following header and parameter:
--header 'x-api-ident: beta'

The first release available after the beta period ends (2021-02-26) will still make pagination optional for TestRail Server, but the structure of the API responses will change.

Hey Mike,

Are you on Cloud or Enterprise ?


We are using the cloud version.


Hey Mike,

Thanks for the details. This is an option for TestRail Server while for TestRail Cloud, it’s mandatory (after the Feb 26 cutoff date).

I hope this helps !



Hey Nenad,

Just to confirm, are you talking about SMTP relay issue without encryption. If so, it is resolved and hopefully will be part of an upcoming release. However, one thing to note is - this worked fine on previous versions prior to 6.6.

So, I am little confused when you used the version Could you please email our Support Team with all the important details like error messages, versions, configurations etc at so that we can troubleshoot it further for you?


I see I thought it was for the cloud as well in order to force it early and that is what I was trying to do.
We are ready for the changes on the 26th but I was doing a double check.

Thank you

Hi Shanu,

I am talking about that we are currently running - 6.2.2 is our QA environment…

So to confirm it is broken on our current version, and when I try to send the test email I get the following:

Sending the test email failed. Please see the following messages and server output for details:

Connection could not be established with host azmta.amcs.tld :stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to none://azmta.amcs.tld:25 (Unable to find the socket transport "none" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?)

Can we please confirm if this fix is available in and what was the last version that this feature worked on so we can potentially upgrade our QA version to test few things?

Thank you very much for your help


Hi All - SMTP issues should be fixed in the 6.7.2 build we just released.

Sounds good - we will get this going and test …

Thank you
