How to invoke OSLC query from Rational Publishing Engine?


Robert Huet (2311446) | asked Feb 13 '17, 4:12 p.m.

 Since the DNG Reportable REST API does not support lightweight module queries, I need to invoke an OSLC query from RPE.  Is this even possible?

Thanks,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Could you please elaborate the issue? like what is lightweight module queries...

Thanks,
Kumar

 That is correct.  We have an RPE report that is driven by a query that returns a long list of requirements modules.  Unfortunately, both the "resources" and the "modules" REST API queries return information not only on the module but also all it's contents (which I call "heavyweight".  I need a "lightweight" query that returns only identifying information from the modules (no contents).  I've developed an OSLC query that does just that.  However, I would like to invoke it from an RPE report.  I've seen articles on how to incorporate an OSLC link in RPE, but not a full query.  Is this even possible?

Thanks,
Robert

Were you able to add REST v2 schema for DNG in RPE? I gave a try using REST v2 Schema Discovery wizard (Base URL - https://server:port/rm/oslc_rm/catalog), but it does not seem to work. It works for RQM so that I can report on OSLC API using RPE.

 I got blocked on the wizard prompt: Select a REST v2 service and its query capability.

Hi Robert,

After further investigation we found that DNG doesn't have queryShape for QueryCapability for OSLC resource. DNG team would need to add support for it.
Please raise an RFE against DNG.

Thanks,
Kumar
