testplan PUT API Blows Away Current Data (4.0.0.1)


Matthew Vermilion (1468) | asked Jun 24 '13, 4:30 p.m.
I am having problems using the testplan API.  I am doing a PUT with the this test plan, but certain things I don't specify get blown away.

Here's an example where I wanted to add a testcase linkage to a testplan.  I found out that I first needed to grab the current testcases, then send them in again with the additional one.  Then I noticed that the PUT would blow away my categories, so I got them and sent them back in again.  Now I notice that the environment linkages get unlinked too...

Does someone know the magic to do just an update that does not blow away other data?  I do notice that the description doesn't get cleared and some other stuff on the summary page...

Here's my current XML from the HttpClient log.  It's easier to read if you cut and paste it into your own editor.  Thanks for your help!

Matt

To update a resource:

1. GET the resource XML.
2. Modify the writable resource properties.
3. PUT the resource XML.
