3 Ways to Save Test Case Execution Results into the TestRail by Using

  a) Testrail Binding
  b) Testrail Listener
  c) Testrail API with the help of references

Here, In our blog, we are using a TestRail listener to do so.

Prerequisites

  • 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
       <python folder path>/Lib/site-packages/TestRailListener.py         testrail_url

       <python folder path>Lib/site-packages/TestRailAPIClient.py       self._url
  • Create a TestRun into TestRail by including all those tests which you want to run and save the results

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 the 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 the tag will be testrailid=1929

  Example:

*** Test Cases ***

Open Gmail

    [Tags]  testrailid=1929

    Open Browser https://www.gmail.com chrome

    [Teardown]    Close Browser
Run Tests Using Listener
pybot --listener TestRailListener.py:testrail_server_name:tester_user_name:tester_user_password:run_id:https:update  robot_suite.robot
