  • Enable TestRail API for your project: Navigate to TestRail > Administration > Site Settings > API menu and enable API.
  • Install Robot Framework TestRail library using the below command:

               pip install robot framework-testrail

  • Remove TestRail from the path in URLs:

Link Test Cases:

To submit test results from Robot Framework Integration with TestRail, you need to link a test case from Robot Framework to the one in TestRail. In order to do that, Create a tag named restrained in each test case of the robot framework to store related TestRail test case ID. This tag should store numbers only. For example, if you have a test case with ID C1929, the variable should be filled with 1929.

  So tag will be testrailid=1929
