RQM REST API - linked defects and TCR history


Piotr G (334) | asked Aug 06 '14, 6:57 a.m.
Hey

I can't find any reference on how to get two items from subject above: defects that were linked to TCR and its history.
Any thoughts on that?

fyi 4.0.3 is the version that I have.

thanks,
Piotr

Use the "historyUrl" to get the history (of any resource in RQM actually, not just TCR).
https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RqmApi#historyUrl

The "calmlinks" parameter is also mentioned in the same document.

Here are other references to the "calmlinks" parameter. The difficult part is to figure out that the defect is part of the CALM integration.

found an answer to get defects included in reposnse - ?calmlinks-true at the end of URL. Still looking for a way to get TCR history.

One additional question: what roles does user have to have to get response for history? I have my user set as tester, testlead, architect, testmanager, labmanager and still getting
"CRJAZ1316E The user \"CLOUDAS@xx.xxx.com\" does not have permission to read items that have the TeamArea access type."

I'm not aware that separate permission is required for retrieving history of an artifact. Also, without context, a role means nothing because it can be customized to have different permissions in different projects. I'm curious why "TeamArea" appears in the error message. What exactly were you trying to retrieve? Is team area enabled in your project? Is the user able to see the history in the Web UI?
