I like to try out some automations from TestRail (similar to http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-custom/automation-trigger). The problem is that I don’t have any idea how this is possible in the cloud?
Do I see it correctly, when using the TestRail cloud instance, the trigger.php script must be on a publicly available web server on our side ? The script must reside in our domain, otherwise local services that start the automated testing are not known.
I have unfortunately minor php knowledge, how is it then with authentification ? How create an UI script that triggers only for authenticated usage ?
Background: I like to be able to select a set of automated tests and then press a button, then a script is called with the run_id and the ids of the selected test cases (or all test cases if non is selected). The script triggers Ranorex (in our case) to execute the corresponding tests and send results back to TestRail
It might be simple to use the UI script to generate the command and show this in a message dialog, copying the command on the local server and execute then Ranorex with it. I don’t see a complete automated way of doing this with the cloud solution, or is one there ?
