RQM custom adapter development

anuraag kb (915) | asked Jul 24 '20, 4:37 p.m.


Am working on custom adapter development taking help of the information from

When we create a test script in RQM, the adapter Type dropdown list contains options like Command Line, Rational Functional Tester, Manual, etc. And on selecting any of the value in the list, the UI changes accordingly and prompts user to input the Script details. 

I want to develop similar custom UI for my adapter. Can anybody provide me the API link that guides us in development of such custom UI.

Thanks in advance.

 Hi Subhajit,

Trust you are doing well and staying safe during the lockdown.

I assume there is an RDF document that we can create where we can describe the adapter and its attributes, functions etc and install it into an ETM installation rather than manually setting it up for each instance. What is a typical way of installing a custom adapter into an RQM installation ?

The location in Project Area Admin that you point to can take manual entries but we couldn't find a way to upload a document that describes this new adapter.

  Go to Project Area Administration -> Test Artifacts -> Custom Execution Adapter Types. There user can define Input Parameter for the custom script. Based on that, UI will render those parameters.

 We need the UI parameters to be shown without manually adding them. I mean suppose if we select the Type as Rational Functional Tester in the script, the input parameters get populated automatically. 

Can this be done for custom adapter as well..?

 Ashish, Anurag,

              There are 2 kinds of execution adapter.
  1. OSLC based adapter - Sample available under public Lyo project. has instruction for it
  2. Reportable Rest API based adapter using adapter library. Like RFT adapter.
Which adapter are you referring?

Hi Subhajit,

I believe we are looking for your recommendation. The other end of the integration will be a server based application that is capable of executing automated tests and not a desktop based tool.
