Yes, using the categoryType and category resource types (https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RqmApi#Resources_and_their_Supported_Op).  I would recommend creating an example in the RQM UI and using the RQM REST API to GET the categoryType and category resources to see the desired structure.

Thanks, Paul,

I could import a nested structure, but so far without values. Next step will be to import  values as well :-).

categorytype01.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><categoryType xmlns="http://jazz.net/xmlns/alm/qm/v0.1/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">   <dc:title>Country</dc:title>   <scope>TestCase</scope>   <required>false</required>   <multiSelectable>false</multiSelectable></categoryType>


categorytype02.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><categoryType xmlns="http://jazz.net/xmlns/alm/qm/v0.1/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">   <dc:title>City</dc:title>   <scope>TestCase</scope>   <required>false</required>   <multiSelectable>false</multiSelectable>   <dependsOn href="./categorytype01.xml"/></categoryType>
