Hi, I'm working on creating cfg files for RQM Imorter and need to get the Unique ID for custom sections I've created. Our company will not allow the use of POSTER or cURL. I've found RQMUrlUtility and believe it can give me what I need but I have hit a snag.

The command I'm using is:
java -jar RQMUrlUtility.jar -user <MyID> -password <MyPSWD> -command GET -filepath <path>/output.txt -url <URL of specific test case>

I'm looking for something like the following in the XML response:

< ns2:section content="" name="MyCustomTPsectionForDemo" id="com.ibm.rqm.planning.editor.section.dynamicSection_1379687368053" description="Created this section for a demo"/ >
The output that I receive is the same as if I were to "view page source". It doesn't provide the XML source.

Can this be done with RQMUrlUtility? if so how?

Thanks,

Karen

I believe you have read this post.
https://jazz.net/forum/questions/176445/rqmexcelimporter-importing-custom-section-in-test-plan

Note that the custom section appears in only the test artifacts that you have added custom sections to. So make sure the test case that you queried is the same one you have already added a custom section.

Also, if you want to add custom sections when creating the test case, you don't need to find the section Id beforehand - you can use any values.

Hi Donald, I have read the post that you mentioned. The "custom sections" are part of my test case template that I created. They are not default fields from RQM.

My biggest issue is actually getting the "dynamicSection_<uuid>" in the XML response for RQMUrlUtility. I cannot get that to work. I keep getting an error.

I believe my REST command may not be correct but I'm not sure what the issue is.

Here are the different ways I have tried it.

The REST command I'm using is as follows:

java -jar RQMUrlUtility.jar -user <MyID> -password <MyPassword> -command REST -filepath <PATH/output.txt> -url <https://HOST:9443/qm/web/console/AIMM%20S2%20Lifecycle%20Project%20for%20Requirements,%20CCM,%20SW%20Dev%20and%20QA%20%28Quality%20Management%29#action=com.ibm.rqm.planning.home.actionDispatcher&subAction=viewTestCase&id=2>

I keep getting the following error when running the RQMUrlUtility:

Default cookie policy RFC_2109 is used.
RQMUrlUtility: connections to <HOST> using <PROJECT>
Attempting to create SSL_TLS contect
java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException: SSL_TLS SSLContext not available
Unable to create SSL_TLS context, trying SSLv3
RQMUrlUtility: ** Invalid HTTP Request *
Disconnecting from the IBM Rational Quality Manager server.
/subAction' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
'id' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

here's another way I tried it based on other searches and posts I've done:
java -jar RQMUrlUtility.jar -user <MyID> -password <My Password> -command REST -filepath <PATH/output.txt> -url https://HOST:9443/qm/web/console/AIMM%20S2%20Lifecycle%20Project%20for%20Requirements,%20CCM,%20SW%20Dev%20and%20QA%20%28Quality%20Management%29/testcase/urn=com.ibm.rqm.planning.TestCase=57

This is the response I get:

Default cookie policy RFC_2109 is used.
RQMUrlUtility: connections to <HOST> using <PROJECT>
Attempting to create SSL_TLS contect
java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException: SSL_TLS SSLContext not available
Unable to create SSL_TLS context, trying SSLv3
RQMUrlUtility: ** Invalid HTTP Request *
Disconnecting from the IBM Rational Quality Manager server.

The one thing I notice in each of these errors is that the project displayed in the double quotes doesn't show the full HOST name.

Also to note, I can get a GET command to work and provide me output however it is not XML output. The command I used was:

java -jar RQMUrlUtility.jar -user <MyID> -password <MyPassword> -command GET -filepath <PATH\output.txt> -url https://HOST:9443/qm/web/console/AIMM%20S2%20Lifecycle%20Project%20for%20Requirements,%20CCM,%20SW%20Dev%20and%20QA%20%28Quality%20Management%29/testcase/urn=com.ibm.rqm.planning.TestCase=57

The response back:

RQMUrlUtility: Connected to https://HOST:9443 using project "PartialHOST:9443"
Attempting to create SSL_TLS context
java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException: SSL_TLS SSLContext not available

Disconnecting from the IBM Rational Quality Manager server.

This results in the same HTML output.

Karen,

Yes RQMURLUtility tool can be used, you will find dynamic section ID as dynamicSection__<uuid> in XML response. Please refer RQM How can I get the dynamic Section ID of one Test Case
