Send results to TestRail to an exisiting test run inside a milestone

Post by Langrisser » Thu Jun 11, 2020 1:19 pm

Hy guys,

today I again request guidance from your side.

Intro:
We already did the Ranorex-Testrail integration and are able to send results to TestRail via the command line.
Right now each time we run a test suite a new test run is created inside the TestRail project which is nice.

However, for upcoming validation activities things should be changed:
We created and started a new milestone inside Testrail and created a testplan containing the ranorex test suite. It is marked with 'R5' inside the milestone.
So I changed the former batch to something like that (using runid instead of runname):
mytestsuite.exe -ts=mytestsuite.rxtst -testrail -truser=user -trpass=pw -trrunid=5
I expected results would now be sent to the test run with the ID '5'. But it always creates a new test run with results instead.
What am I missing?

Thanks for your time.
