This topic explains how to integrate TestRail with Bugzilla. There are currently three ways to integrate TestRail with Bugzilla, namely:
- Using defect URLs to link test results to Bugzilla
- Using the defect plugin for Bugzilla to push and look up Bugzilla cases
- Using reference URLs to link test cases to Bugzilla
You don't have to use all listed integration options and you can mix and match the integration with other tools. Configuring the integration usually only takes a few minutes and this guide explains how to configure the integration and how it works.
The defect URLs are used to let TestRail know how to access your Bugzilla instance. Once the URLs have been configured, a new Add link appears next to the Defects field in the Add Test Result dialog. This link allows you to jump to Bugzilla's New Case form to report a new bug. Additionally, entered case IDs are linked to your Bugzilla instance to make it easier to track the status of your cases.
To configure Bugzilla's URLs in TestRail, select Administration > Integration. You can alternatively enter separate bug tracker URLs for each project under Administration > Projects. Use the following example URLs to configure the addresses:
Bugzilla installation Defect View Url: http://your-server/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=%id% Defect Add Url: http://your-server/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
Defect plugins can be used to implement a deeper bug tracker integration and TestRail comes with a ready-to-use Bugzilla defect plugin. To configure the defect plugin, select Administration > Integration and select Bugzilla in the Defect Plugin dropdown list. The next step is to configure all the necessary connection settings in the Configuration field. Project specific plugins and configuration settings can optionally be specified under Administration > Projects.
When the defect plugin has been configured, a new Push link is shown next to the Defects field in the Add Test Result dialog. Clicking the link will open a popup dialog that enables you to push a bug report to Bugzilla without leaving TestRail. Once the test result was added, hovering the mouse cursor over an case ID will open a window with useful information and status details about the case in Bugzilla.
The Bugzilla defect plugin was built to work with a standard Bugzilla configuration. TestRail allows you to customize the integration to work with your own custom fields or to map users between TestRail and Bugzilla. Please see the following articles for details on how to customize the integration:
The reference URLs are used to link test cases to cases stored in Bugzilla via the References field. Once the URLs have been configured, case IDs entered in the References field are linked to your Bugzilla instance to make it easier to jump to related issues, feature specifications or requirements.
To configure Bugzilla's URLs for the References field, select Administration > Integration. You can alternatively enter separate reference URLs for each project under Administration > Projects. Use the following example URLs to integrate TestRail with Bugzilla:
Bugzilla installation Reference View Url: http://your-server/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=%id% Reference Add Url: http://your-server/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
