How to update the 'Actual Result' field of Test Result, via REST API?

I would like to use the RQM URL Utility to perform the update.

I can't find the right url to perform the action.

You need to find the REST URI for the test result first, then use a PUT to modify it.
The resource URI for the test result should look like
where "_ZcMRAK2SEeO_fciXVKJ7Tg" is the UUID for the project and it is definitely different in your environment, and "34" is the web Id for the test result in this sample.
You can use a GET command to retrieve the current content of the test result, and save it as a text/XML file. Next, modify the file by removing all the attributes except for <ns2:stepResults>. Then, find the <ns2:actualResult> attribute of the corresponding step and modify its content. Finally you can use a PUT command to modify the test result by using the same resource URI and the modified file.
Note that you can only modify the step results as a whole - including all steps, all expected results and all actual results. Do not remove anything within <ns2:stepResults>, otherwise the same will be removed from the test result when you use PUT to modify it.
