Open new work items from ANT


Jose Miguel Ordax Cassa (2.4k2126100) | asked Nov 13 '09, 9:08 a.m.
Which is the easiest way to open a new work item from an ANT script?
Should I develop my own ANT Task using RTC APIs? Or is there anything
already built I am missing?

Thanks,

Chemi.

There isn't currently any Ant task for creating work items. See the existing requests:
83846: Command line interface for work items
86140: Command line and Ant Task facilities for creating/updating workitems

In the interim, you could try using the OSL/C API via curl/perl -- see the following articles:

Thanks Nick.
What about using Java API
(https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ProgrammaticWorkItemCreation)
instead of REST API? Any inconvenience in front of the OSLC one?

Yes, using the programmatic Java client library API would work and would give you more control.

Can you provide more details about what you're trying to do? Might be better to comment in the Ant task enhancement request rather than here.

I will update the enhancement request. Thanks for the info.
