TestRail features do not honour filtering


I noticed today when doing a regression that TestRail’s features do not honour the filters.

For instance if I use a filter the graphs and metrics do not adjust to this so I can’t see how many test cases are left.

The other thing is that the next test case feature which is handy doesn’t honour the filter.

If I am moving through test cases then I want to move through the filtered ones and not the whole list.

This improvement should be made.


Hi there!

Thanks for the feedback. Can you please let me know which exact metrics or reports you mean? When you apply a filter to a test run, only the tests matching the filters are listed in the test grid.


What I meant were the graphs and remaining test cases associated with the test run and the next test case arrow inside the test case. These do not take into account the filters.
