Where and how to post result to test case,retrieve Run Id and Case Id for Testrail API(automation)


Dear All,

May I know how can I retrieve the Run_ID and Test_ID properly? I need to use it on my TestRail API send_post method.

My code as below:

require 'selenium-webdriver’
require ‘./testrail.rb’

client =‘’)
client.user = ‘.com’
client.password = '

#I’m not very sure how to use get_run
#c = client.get_run()
#puts c

#Firefox browser instantiation
driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox

#Loading the assertselenium URL "xxxxxxxxxxx"
puts “Successfully navigated to Google page”

#Saving screenshot of the page

#Code below caused the errors
r = client.send_post(
{ :status_id => 1, :comment => ‘This test worked fine!’ }

puts r

But I end up got the errors as below:

/usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.4.1/lib/ruby/2.4.0/net/http.rb:1570:in addr_port': undefined method+’ for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)

Please advice and prefer a more detailed steps-by-steps guide on how to do it properly and sorry for these simple question, I’m still a beginner. Thank you.

Best Regards,


Solved. Put Http instead of Https.
