RM API - Create Validate By Link using RM.Data.createLink?

Dave Evans (14812846) | asked Oct 01 '20, 12:00 p.m.

Trying to script setting a "Validated By" link from a DOORS artifact to an RQM Test Step. I've got the artifactRef and the test step's dcterms:identifier, which is a URL. I tried using:

RM.Data.createLink(artifactRef, RM.Data.VALIDATED_BY, testStepURL, callback);

But this results in return code: OPERATION_BAD_REQUEST being returned to my callback function.

Does the RM API support linking to test artifacts? If not, is there a supported method of setting a 'Validated by' link programatically?

Widget API supports only creating links inside RM (between artifacts). If You want to create links with test cases then You should use OSLC. Hope it will help.

 Hello Dave,

it works if you create an RM.ArtifactRef-object. But you only name the uri (is the encoded uri from the test case). Then use the ref-object within the creatLink function. If the you have a proper link-validity it works.

For example:  
RM.Data.createLink(refRequierment, RM.Data.VALIDATED_BY, refQmArtefact, function(res){});

I am not sure if You understood question from Dave. We are talking about links between QM and RM.

I am absolut sure, that I understood the question right. I have added an example-code to my answer.

by the way we know each other from an Jazz installation 1,5 years ago in Bremen via web-session. Do you remember me?
