Lifecycle Project Administration REST API CLM 5?

Hi everyone!

Is there a current LPA REST API for CLM 5?
Unfortunately I can not find the entry points for it ( are only for 3 and 4 and did not work for version 5).

For the project service I tried the URL provided in the link and also with "jts" in it:
https://server:port/admin/projects and https://server:port/jts/admin/projects
but I don't get a JSON back. Header are set to "Accept: application/json".

I would very much appreciate any help!
Thanks, Philipp.

Hi Philipp,

admin.war is no longer available since 5.0.2.

Hi Shubjt,

Thank you for your quick reply.
Your provided URL responses the status 200, it doesn't provide the lifecycle projects thought. The response is a html without useful information (same response as https://server:port/jts/admin/projects) :-(
Header and authorization is set.

Edit: I used the Firefox Plugin RESTClient and REST Easy to submit the GET.
Edit2: Same response in via java code (response.getEntity().getContent())

I tried loading the /jts/rootservices URL using the RESTClient on Firefox and found the following URL for LPA projects. Using this URL I can list the user projects:


Could you try the above URL?

https://server:port/jts/lifecycle-project/user-projects  also works for me. Thanks for providing the link.

I really don't like the implementation of LPA REST API in CLM 5.x - it's all over the place. There is no such an "entry point" that you can construct your URL. You may have found out that the URL can start with /jts/lpa, /jts/lifecycle-project/projects, /jts/lifecycle-projects/user-projects, or something else that we have not discovered yet.

The API is still a "draft". Seeing that there are virtually no movements in the associated work item, my impression is that this API is not being actively developed. I don't really recommend using such API in your production environment.

Hi Donald, thank you very much for sharing your experiences.
As there are no official documentations about the API under CLM 5.x and as you mentioned, no progress in the work item, I will try to avoid the use of LPA API in my production environment.
