TestRail – Advanced Search Option

TestRail supports search functionality. Text entered into search box (present at upper right corner of the user interface) is treated as Query and after execution of query it displays all searched items as result. TestRail searches through all project entities, such as test cases, runs and suites. TestRail also searches through custom field that have been added to test case and test results. The search test box is present all of the pages.

TestRail supports advanced search functionality as well. User can also just enter the ID of any entity to directly find the specific result. The advance functionality narrows down the search results and provides more specific result. For example, if user wants to view test case#8, user can directly search it by entering C15 into the search box. Similarly, to go to the test suite #1, simply enter S1.
