Archive project area via REST Api

Canberk Akduygu (99237371) | asked Mar 07 '14, 4:34 a.m.
I am trying to develop and integration between our project portfolio management tool and IBM CLM.
What I do is to read closed projects on PPM and Arhive them from CLM application.

I have found some info on but wasn't successfull on archiving projects.

I use Mozilla POSTER plugin. I  POST and PUT to his URL : https://server:9443/qm/process/project-areas/_BZPQQaVAEeOZWd5JZj9JgQ
The content is
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><jp06:project-area xmlns:jp06="" jp06:name="Zam31.59753463661717(Quality Management)">
    <jp06:summary>Zam31.59753463661717(Quality Management)</jp06:summary>
    <jp06:modified>Thu, 06 Mar 2014 15:00:33 GMT</jp06:modified>

But what I get is HTTP 403 on POST and HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed on PUT.

Has anyone tried to do such operations?

Hi Paul,

I was wondering how we can remove the project from LPA  screen.

When I delete projects by using RRC RTC and RQM links, LPA projects still exist in https://server/admin/web/projects

When you delete a project area using the RQM Reportable REST API, you are deleting the RQM project area, which is a member of the lifecycle project area.

But how do I deleted my Lifecycle Project like in this example: RRC, RTC and RQM projects are deleted but in LPA side, I can see the LPA project. I want to remove that one.

Lifecycle projects can only be deleted in the Lifecycle Project Administration UI.
