Create Test Cases

Once TestRail Lite is installed into your Jira Cloud projects, you can create test cases inside your Jira issues.

To start, navigate to an existing Jira issue, or create a new one. After you have created a Jira issue, you will see a new TestRail Lite Results section in your issue layout. If the TestRail Lite Results section doesn’t immediately appear on your Jira issue, click the  TestRail Lite Results button under the summary field of a Jira issue.

It displays a new TestRail Lite Results section under the description area of your Jira issue. From here you can start creating Test Cases. Press the Add test case button.

A window will appear where you can set all necessary data for your new Test Case.

Name Description
Title Add a title describing your test case.
Suite Select the Suite in which your test case will be created. Your TestRail Lite app comes with a base suite called “Master” by default, but you can change this name and add other test suites later.
Section Select a suite section to create your test case.

You can choose between three different templates to create a new test case:

  • Test Case (Text)
  • Test Case (Steps)
  • Exploratory Session

You can define a priority for your test case, you have these options:

  • Critical
  • High
  • Medium
  • Low
References By default it is set to the Jira issue in which you are creating the test case. You can link test cases to other Jira issues by adding the issue ID (including key) in a comma-separated list.



Test Case (Text)

This template lets you define optional preconditions, steps, and expected results for a general test case in a flexible way. TestRail Lite allows you to add rich text in any of the below fields, as well as images or videos for reference during testing.

Test Case (Steps)

With this template you can determine specific steps your team should take when testing this case, and what the expected results should be. You will find a number next to each step.You can change the order of the steps using the up and down arrows below the step number.

To add a new step, at the bottom of the steps list you will find an Add step button. Using the plus button next to the step adds a step right below.

Exploratory Session

Use this template if you need to test in a more exploratory way for your project defined by a certain goal or mission instead of steps and expected results.
