Trying to automatically create test runs


We are trying to programmatically create test runs from a given test plan based on commits. This is for our automated regression testing. Are other people doing this? I don’t seem to be able to put data on a test run about the revision except for in the description field which seems inadequate. Any suggestions?



Thanks for your posting. Could you share a few more details on what you are trying to accomplish? Do you use the API for this?

Test runs currently don’t have a Version field like the tests/test results do but you could:

a) Use the milestone field for this, if applicable
b) Append the version to the name of the test run
c) Add the version the description field (not preferred as you’ve mentioned)

I hope this helps and please let me know in case you have any further questions.
