Where's the exploratory testing template?


This article,, describes an exploratory testing template. I do not see the template in our hosted instance of testrail. Do I need to set it up manually?


Some information here:


Hi Jeff,

Thanks for posting. For upgraded instances, TestRail wouldn’t automatically add the new Exploratory Session template (in order not to change the custom field configuration which is often not wanted for existing installations) but you can simply add it yourself by following the instructions above.

I hope this helps!
