Triggering a Report via the API


hey Tobias,
me too, definitely +1 for this.
Automating the report creation at the end of a test run could be very useful!
(ps: as suggested by gmcdonald, it should be on ‘predefined’ mode then not imposing us the kind of report, but instead maybe calling a template to configure or sthg like this)


Thanks for your feedback, Guillaume!




Add a plus 1 for me too please. We are definitely looking at including the generation and sending of reports after an automated test run is complete. This feature would make it a lot easier for us.


Thanks for your feedback, Luke!



Add a vote here. Any idea on when we will see this feature?


Thanks for your feedback! We currently don’t have an estimate at this point unfortunately but I’m happy to add another vote.



Plz add a vote here!


Thanks for your feedback, Aravind!



I would also like to add a vote for this feature. In particular, the ability to pull in the charts, e.g., burndown chart.


Hi Steve,

Thanks for your feedback. You can already pull some statistics via the API, e.g. the passed/failed etc. numbers for a milestone, plan or test run via the regular get_milestone, get_plan and get_run APIs:



Please add a vote, we want to trigger the report then send the report link to slack. For others to view.


Thanks for your feedback, Joe!



API Reports would be awesome and would simplify our release documentation process a lot. Please add my vote.


I second this idea, we need this so we can do automated bi-directional trace matrix between JIRA and TestRail.


Hey Rick,

Thank you for your post. I have added your vote to this.


I would also love to have this available.

Please add my vote!

Very good API to work with, btw. Thanks!

Can I trigger a report straight from an automated test run?

Hi Marius,

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you’ve enjoyed working with the API thus far. I’ve added your vote to the request as well, and we’re happy to review this for a future update.



Is this feature available now ?


They have had only one release since Sept 2017 (earlier this month) and it was not released as part of that release (v5.4.1).


I would like to +1 this please, would be a great feature for our automation suite. Thanks!
