I currently use the coverage for references report in a one off capacity for both test results and test cases to answer the questions:
- Have we designed all the test cases for the stories in the sprint?
- What is the current result status against those stories?
I’d like the report to be scheduled but I can’t as I have to manually add the jira references to the report criteria to ensure I’m reporting against only those stories relevant to a particular sprint or milestone. Without adding the list of comparative references manually, I really don’t see what use that report is as it’ll only report against references that you’ve already added to TestRail.
What would be ideal to filter the report against Jira release or sprint that would then automatically be associated to the relevant stories. That way, I could then set up a daily report that would adapt to those and changes in the sprint or release so that the report would only report against valid stories.
I think TestRail could make more use of the Jira APIs as it could make the reporting so powerful. Right now, any reporting against Jira tickets is a manual process, meaning that our only solution is to write our own API’s…any suggestions Gurock?
