Default release track date: February 2023
We’re pleased to announce the release of TestRail 7.8 to all Early Access and Default release track Cloud customers. This release will be rolled out over the course of a month and includes a new test data parameterization feature for Enterprise customers, Jira integration improvements, capabilities for the design and execution of BDD scenarios natively in TestRail, and a number of reporting and chart improvements. We’ve also radically improved the TestRail search functionality.
It’s now even easier to complete your work in less time with the introduction of test parameterization for TestRail Enterprise customers. Test parameterization gives you the ability to run the same test case with multiple inputs so that you can verify multiple scenarios without having to duplicate that test case. With test parameterization, you can achieve faster test case design, increased test coverage, and reduced test case maintenance. Learn more about test parameterization here.
Jira integration improvements
Users on all TestRail plans can now streamline workflows through an improved Jira integration that allows all customers to edit Jira issues directly from within TestRail, link test plans and milestones to Jira issues, and provide increased visibility into associated TestRail data from within Jira. You can learn more about the bidirectional integration here.
New BDD template
You can now design and execute BDD scenarios natively in TestRail. Import and export feature files and use Gherkin keywords to give structure to your BDD testing activities in TestRail. For more details, check out the full BDD documentation here.
Improved search for TestRail
We’re introducing big improvements to the search experience across TestRail Cloud instances:
- You can search all text fields across all of your projects in your TestRail instance from your Dashboard
- You can filter search results by category, date range, and more
- You can see a list of items you’ve recently viewed, like test cases and runs
You can learn about more time-saving search functionality by checking out the full search documentation here.
Customizable charts give you the power to get the information you need more quickly, directly from the Dashboard and Project Overview pages. View and explore data through cross-project reporting as well as the ability to filter and refine chart information. Learn how to customize and refine your charts here.
Ignore test results in reporting
Administrators can now configure an additional setting on your test statuses to exclude results from reporting. Using a custom status that is set to ignore test results helps ensure all information in your charts and reports is relevant to the current situation even if your scope of testing changes or cases are not yet ready for testing. Learn how to ignore test results in reporting here.
Property Distribution customizable stacking
You can now generate more detailed Property Distribution reports through the ability to customize your chart grouping. A second attribute can be selected so that you can stack test cases by a second attribute such as priority, automation type, created by, and more. Learn more about customizable stacking in the Property Distribution reports here.
