Best way to automatically create TestSuites/TestCases/TestScripts in RQM

 Hi All,

I am looking for the best way to automatically create TestSuites/TestCases/TestScripts in RQM, what is the best approach ? Is using the RQM Rest API the only way ?

or there are other better approach ?

I see there is a RQM plugin in Jenkins, not sure if it can be used to push tests to RQM.

The RQM Reportable REST API or RQM OSLC API are you only two options.  I would suggest using the RQM Reportable REST API (see Common Usage Scenarios).  There is some sample Java code that you can use/extend (see RQM API Utility).

Thanks Paul for the prompt response.

Looking at the Jenkins RQM plugin it looks like it is able to pull the info from RQM and not post the info, do you have experiences using it ?

I will take a look at the RQM Reportable REST API.

Hi Eric,
