Requirement link syntax when importing to RQM via XML

Bob 3 (1481158) | asked Jan 09 '19, 2:33 p.m.

I am trying to import test cases to RQM via the built-in test case importer that is available in the RQM UI at Construction > Import Test Cases.

In the documentation, it talks about the XML schema for importing test case requirements links:
anonymous, empty content
A link to a rationale behind the test case. Normally, this will be a motivator of some kind.
XML Source (w/o annotations (3); see within schema source)
<xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0" name="requirement">
<xs:attribute name="href" type="xs:anyURI" use="required"/>
<xs:attribute ref="vega:id"/>

It isn't clear to me what the exact syntax should be to effectively link the new test case to one or more requirements in DNG. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Hi Bob,

This feature uses the RQM Reportable REST API format (see  However, 

As of Rational Quality Manager 4.0, the requirement Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API is deprecated.   As of Rational Quality Manager 5.0, the requirement Rational Quality Manager Reportable REST API is not supported.   As an alternative, RQM's implementation of the RQM OSLC QM V2 API can be used to associate remote requirements with test resources.

I have opened the following defects to clarify this limitation:
