Current situation

Let’s say we have 10 test cases that with the same form, but fill it with different .

Now we specify it in details 10 times and if the form is changed, well, we have to update 10 test cases (in real life it means 9 of them will never be updated).

Possible solution

Our team decided to this data separately. For example, take an excel file:

1 TC 2
field 1 TC 1 specific data TC 2 specific data
field 2 TC 1 specific data TC 2 specific data
field 3 TC 1 specific data TC 2 specific data
field 4 TC 1 specific data TC 2 specific data

But…

I hope that Excel is not the best possible software to do this. It’s not that convenient for both manual and automation. I think about writing a test tool myself, because it looks goddamn easy: set up database (so autotests can quickly connect and execute with any set of data we want without touching the code) with a simple web-interface.

But maybe you can suggest some ready to use tools? Integration with TestRail would be nice, but not mandatory.
