Hello Chris,

Are you looking to get the primary text of the artifact is so then you can try the following URL in your document specification:

Example URL for Document Specification:

(Note: The query above will provide you the resources from across the entire project specific to what you have outlined in your template.)

I'm assuming that you are using a similar query in your template: datasource/artifact/description

Also, there are some great examples on our developer works site below for RPE and RRC reporting:!/wiki/Rational%20Publishing%20Engine/page/Scenario%20-%20RPE%20-%20RRC%203.0.1%20v3

(Note: The examples in the link above are for RRC 3.0.1.x but are applicable to RRC 4.0.x)

Hope this helps.

Hi Thomas,
Thanks for the info. I understand your answers and it does work generally for artifacts.
However in my haste I forgot to include a vital piece of additional info.

The artifact I am querying is in a module.
In this case you can not apparently get to the primary text as its not provided by the REST API.
