Hi Harshal,

Can you try using the href value of the attachment tag coming as part of ExecutionResult xml

harshal Wable commented Sep 07 '15, 5:49 a.m.

Yes I am using the href value 
which is this in this case

This is what I am getting 

However when I download this using
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer>java.exe -jar C:\Users\IBM_ADMIN\Downloads\RQ
M-Extras-RQMUrlUtil-4.0.3\RQMUrlUtility.jar -command GET -user
om -password 12345 -filepath C:\testplan\testplan.jpg -url "https://rtcclm2:94

It gives me corrupted file or Big file error

This is what I am getting when I open the file

You don't have enough reputation to attach a screen shot here. Upload it somewhere else and link back here. Also, have you tried to open the file in a binary editor to see what the content looks like? You may be surprised to see what actually is in the file.

Harshal sent me the corrupted PNG file and I noticed that it was tagged with the UTF-8 BOM (the first six byes are EF BF BD 50 4E 47) while the first four bytes of a PNG file should be 89 50 4E 47. So it appears that the tool treats the stream as a string rather than binary. In fact, we can see the message "RQMUrlUtility: Calling [ HTTP GET ] method to retrieve XML from a specified URL" in the command output.

Strictly speaking, the IAttachmentRestService API is an internal API, not RQM Reportable REST API, so we can't expect it to work with any URLs.

Since the source code is included in the tool, we can build the tool with some minor changes so that it can work with the internal attachment URL.
1. Locate the file RQMUrlUtility\src\com\ibm\rqm\url\client\
2. Locate this line - it works for the "attachment" resource when using RQM Reportable REST API
        if (sAttachURL.indexOf("attachment") == -1) {
3. Change it as shown below - now it takes care of IAttachmentRestService API as well
        if (sAttachURL.indexOf("attachment") == -1 && sAttachURL.indexOf("IAttachmentRestService") == -1) {
4. Rebuild the tool.

If the tool works correctly, we should see this message in the command output.
RQMUrlUtility: Calling [ HTTP GET ] method to download an attachment
