Hi Ajith,

You need to have a JSession ID, not sure if Poster supports it.
I mean, browser plugins using session details from browser.

Thanks a lot Tadeusz and Ralph.

Could you please tel me how do i get the response from RQM rest API from java code. Which http client should be used to achieve this. My objective is to consume the rqm Apis and get the response through java.

I think this is the best place to start:

Download the workshop and check the examples :)

Thanks a lot :)

Got it..Just posting the steps for future reference. . I used RQMUrlUtility jar provided by JAZZ for both Get and Put requests. Using this we can login inside the server as well as perform different http operations from code. 
Steps followed : 
1. RQMUrlUtlyLogin to login inside the server. 
2. rqmLogin.login(userid, password, context);
3.RQMUrlUtlyJRSHttpsClient httpClient = rqmLogin.getHttpClient();
4. GetMethod getMethod = new GetMethod(url); response = httpClient.executeMethod(getMethod);

Thanks a lot guys.

Dear Tadeusz and Ralph,

Please let me know the RQM Rest APIs for export pdf option. I would like to have API for pdf trigger(export summary) with respect to test plan. I wish to have a pdf trigger of a particular plan when i give a test plan id through API. I also wish to get the pdf using REST API when igive a plan id. Kindly tell me the APIs for both the operations.

Could you please help me ?

I am pretty sure that those are internal APIs and you will have to find them out on your own if you want to use them.

Thanks for the update Ralph.

But could you please guide me on how to start in-order for me to find it those APIs.

Hi Ajith,

I think Ralph suggested you to try to use reverse engineering and for example, using Dev tools in your web browser check what are the requests send to the server which in return give you the pdf.
There is no publicly available documentation where you can find how to export artifacts to pdf (at least I am not aware of such), and that would be the only option.
You may also contact with your IBM Sales Representative and involve IBM Services to help you with it. That would be the second option which we can offer.
