Build REST API

Hi,

I'd like to be able to submit build requests via REST service calls. This topic indicates that as of February 2009, the build REST API was internal. Is this still the case? If so, are there plans in the near (or distant) future to expose them?

Thanks!

Note that if you're not tied to the idea of using the REST interface, you can request builds programmatically via the Java client library, or by using the requestTeamBuild Ant task. For more details on the available Ant tasks, see https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BuildFAQ#BuildSystemToolkitContents

Hi John,

The statement in that forum post is still accurate. While you could use the existing Build REST interface, which is used to drive the Build web UI, it's still considered as internal and may change at any time (although we do try to make enhancements in a backwards compatible way).

There are plans to provide an OSLC style API for Build, which is being tracked in in 73070: RESTful API for Build, to support C/ALM integration scenarios.

That item also has some examples showing how to use the existing REST interface.

Regards,
Nick
