Tools: Lighthouse

This topic explains how to integrate TestRail with Lighthouse. There are currently two ways to integrate TestRail with Lighthouse, namely:

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.

Defect URLs

The defect URLs are used to let TestRail know how to access your Lighthouse 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 Lighthouse's New Ticket form to report a new bug. Additionally, entered ticket IDs are linked to your Lighthouse instance to make it easier to track the status of your tickets.

To configure Lighthouse'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:

Lighthouse Hosted
Defect View Url: http://name.lighthouseapp.com/projects/<projectid>/tickets/%id%
Defect Add Url:  http://name.lighthouseapp.com/projects/<projectid>/tickets/new

Reference URLs

The reference URLs are used to link test cases to tickets stored in Lighthouse via the References field. Once the URLs have been configured, ticket IDs entered in the References field are linked to your Lighthouse instance to make it easier to jump to related issues, feature specifications or requirements.

To configure Lighthouse'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 Lighthouse:

Lighthouse Hosted
Reference View Url: http://name.lighthouseapp.com/projects/<projectid>/tickets/%id%
Reference Add Url:  http://name.lighthouseapp.com/projects/<projectid>/tickets/new
