Testmo integrates with Trello so you can add new issues (as cards in Trello) from Testmo, link Trello issues from various entities such as test results and cases, and directly report & access referenced issues.

The Trello integration uses Testmo's link-based integration that enables you to work and integrate with various issue trackers. This page explains how to configure and use the Trello integration in Testmo.

Configuring the Trello integration

To configure the Trello integration, in Testmo go to Admin > Integrations. You need to be a project or site administrator in Testmo to access this area. Then follow these instructions:

  • Select Custom issue tracker

  • Click + Issue tracker

  • In the Add issue tracker dialog, enter the details of your Trello instance:

    • Name: Select the name you want to use for the integration. The name will be displayed in Testmo when choosing an issue tracker integration.

    • New issue link: This is the link users are redirected to when adding new issues from Testmo:

    # Link to the board overview; replace <workspace> with your Trello workspace name<workspace>/home
    # Or link to a specific board in Trello; replace <id> with the board's ID<id>
    • View issue link: When users click on a linked Trello issue ID, users are redirected to this address. Testmo replaces the $(id) placeholder with the actual ID:

    # This links to a specific card in Trello$(id)
    • Issue ID format: For Trello, select Other

Using the Trello integration

The integration allows users to add new issues to Trello during testing and during test case design. Users can also access linked Trello issues from tests, cases, runs etc. from the entity pages and issue reports to implement Trello test management with Testmo.

How to find the card/issue ID in Trello?

  • Milestones

  • Cases

  • Runs

  • Test results

  • Sessions
