LabManagement: How to import a new machine type?


Jörg Werner (3033781) | asked Mar 24 '17, 12:38 p.m.

Hi!

I've defined additional types in the lab management (besides Machine, Physical machine,..)
One new Type is "Gear Box":


Now I want to import lab resources with the new type.
The Excel Importer creats following XML:



When I try to import it, the resource is created, but the type is Machine.
Within the Gui I can change the type to Gear Box.

What can I do, that the type is created automatically during import?

   thanks, jörg

According to RQMExcelImporter wiki, it seems the supported type is

"Machine"/"PhysicalMachine"/"VirtualMachine"

Hi don,

is this only a limitation of RQMExcelimporter, or of the underlying interface (RESTAPI/OSLC)?
