Resource Oriented Work Item API with OSLC_CM

Steve Crespo (152) | asked Oct 09 '15, 1:49 p.m.
Is it possible to get the approvals for a work item using the rest api? I have been doing a GET to this url https:// :9443/ccm/resource/itemName/ to get a specific work item but the approvers aren't included. I am not sure how to get the approvals with that endpoint. I did find that I could use this: https:// :9443/ccm/rpt/repository/workitem?fields=workitem/workItem[id=12345]/approvals/(stateIdentifier|stateName|approvalDescriptor/id|approver/name) to get the approvals but it returns xml and I need it in json format. I've tried setting the Accept header to application/json but that doesn't work. Any help would be much appreciated!

 I think I may be wrong in that the api I am currently using isn't oslc but ccm.

You cannot query approvals using CCM OSLC API.

The API that returns the approvals is reportable REST API, which is mainly for reporting.

That API doesn't report JSON does it?

No it doesn't. The reportable REST API generates contents for ETL and report engines. I have never heard that it produces anything in JSON.
