RQM REST API: How to obtain possible states of an executionresult?

Rophy Tsai (231017) | asked Sep 23 '14, 12:15 p.m.

Using RQM Reportable REST API (,
I have a few questions about executionresult states obtained from a GET /executionresult/id

1) state is a name like '', how do I obtain the possible list of such names?

2) are these possible states customizable in RQM (using either UI or API)? 

3) if they're customizable, how do I get Display Name of a state?

You can always set a state in the RQM UI and GET the execution result to determine the state.

Please open a RQM defect to update

2) Yes, see >> Execution States.

3) Unfortunately, the display name of the state is not exposed in the
RQM Reportable REST API.  Please open a RQM defect

 Superb, thank you for such detailed answers!

I'm not sure what to open defect for the part of api-doc.  I opened an enhancement for possibility to 
1) obtaining display name
2) obtaining list of possible states (given that states are customizable and not fixed).

For 1), see The qm:executionresult/alm:state property does not document default execution states. (124431).
