How to retrieve a specific artifact type using RPE

Steven Ricci (111) | asked May 08 '15, 12:31 p.m.
I am creating a report where I would like to place a specific artifact type in a certain section of a report.  For instance business requirement, actors, functional, non-functional.  Can not seem to find any clear information on how to set a filter for each section container to retrieve the specific type.  Any suggestions?

Have you considered using separate queries for each section?  The RDNG Reportable API allows you to filter by artifact type in the GET request.  See and search for "Filter by artifact type"

ok I see how that would work where would I apply that in the report structure.

You'd specify a different query in each container.

In RPE template, you can apply a Scripted Filter. For example, if you are retrieving resources, try adding a filter datasource/artifact/collaboration/attributes/objectType/name = type as shown in scren shot.

Looks like you are using a more recent version of reporting.  We are still on  until end of May.  Seems pretty clear in your screenshot.

Right. I am using RPE 1.3 with IFix002. But Filter is supported in as well. You will find this in Properties pane (no tabs in older versions).
