User role using API



Does TestRail have API’s to allow you to alter roles?

We are in the process of purchasing TestRail following an evaluation, we have a large numbers of teams that will be in projects and similarly to JIRA’s “Project Lead” and “Project Administrator” role we would like to be able to give users the ability to add and remove other users to and from their projects. Groups is not really ideal

Any help much appreciated


Hi CJ,

Thanks for your posting. There’s currently no separation between project and global/site administrators. So, TestRail only has global/site administrators currently and users need this administrator status to change the project access. It’s already planned to make this more flexible though and I’m happy to add another vote to this feature request, thanks again for your feedback!

Roles are currently not covered as part of TestRail’s API.
