run test suite from RQM execution tool


sara chason (277) | asked Feb 05 '17, 8:48 a.m.

 Hello,

I'm using RQM execution tool to execute my test suites, but I'm interested to create a TSER first (using REST API), set a value to a field in my test suit and then run it.
my question is - how do I retrieve my test suite, set a value to a field in it (for example: an execution variable field), create a new test suite execution record (through REST API) and then run it using RQM execution tool?

Hi,

if you are interested in execution variable setting while using RQM Execution Tool, this can be achieved via using option "-variables=<var1Name:var1Value,var2Name:,va3Name:var3Value> " while running the tool. 

If you want to set some of the other fields of Test Suites before running the TSER then you can do so by doing a GET on the TSER, this would give you Test Suite link. Then you can do a PUT with required field data on that Test Suite. 

Fox Example - GET on TSER can be done as follows - 
https://<server+URL>:<portNumer>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project+alias>/suiteexecutionrecord/urn:com.ibm.rqm:suiteexecutionrecord:<suit+internal+number>
This would return the associated "testsuite" reference. Use that to do the required PUT. 

More about Using REST APIs can be found here - https://jazz.net/library/article/1376.

I hope this helps. 
Thanks,
Abhishek

 is it possible to create a TSER from REST API the same way of GET update xml result and then PUT the changed xml?

so far I didn't see a test suite's execution records list when retrieving a test suite so I can add a TSER to the list and PUT my changes, so I wonder how can it be done differently.

 and also - what is the best way to parse the xml result I get from REST API\OSLC in order to get a certain field? (I'm using Python if it matters)

For Python, you can use the builtin ElementTree library.
https://docs.python.org/3/library/xml.etree.elementtree.html

You can search "python xml" to find other compatible libraries as well.

Can't say which is "best" though.
