How to create a request xml to update/create in jazz server via REST service?


ast java (4512048) | asked Sep 15 '16, 6:29 a.m.
Hi Team,

I am new to REST services and I can able to get the response using REST service "GET".

The content is as below, (Permissions for role)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<soapenv:Envelope
xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
.
        .
<soapenv:Body>
<response>
<method>getPermissions</method>
<interface>com.ibm.team.process.internal.service.web.IProcessWebUIService</interface>
<returnValue xsi:type="com.ibm.team.repository.common.services:ComplexArrayDataArg">
<type>COMPLEX</type>
<values xsi:type="rest:PermissionConfigurationDTO">
<id>com.ibm.team.dashboard.server.saveProjectDashboard</id>
<enabled>true</enabled>
<finalOp>false</finalOp>
<denialExplanation xsi:nil="true"/>
</values>
</returnValue>
</response>
</soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

I am planning to update some permission for the role and update into the server via POST.

I just updated some fields in the xml and directly calling the doPost(..) method, and then i got Bad request error.

As I am new to the REST service I am not sure how to construct this request xml to doPost(...) .

Please let me know how to resolve this issue.

Follow the instructions in this article, if you want to programmatically add members to a project area and assign roles to them.

 Hi Donald,


Thanks for the response.

Is there any documentation available to construct this request xml using JAVA (for POST).

Note: I can able to update/write to server using RTC API's. But I would like to know is there a way to get the server response xml and update the xml then again just POST the updated xml to the server.
So this scenario I would like to know how to construct it and send the request.

You do realize that the service that you are using is an internal one, don't you? As we don't have much publicly available documentation on internal APIs, I doubt that any further information can be provided in this regard.

 Ok. Thanks Donald for the input.
