 Hi team,


I know the REST is support bulk create/update test artifact in RQM. But while updating multiple test cases what should be the Url? 

The documentation is not describe this scenario. Please suggest the solution

I'm writing here as I couldn't comment.

I'm facing a similar issue. I'm trying to update existing test cases, but POST request is creating new test cases instead of updating test cases.

I have tried the following formats for ID
  1. <id>123456<id>
  2. <id>https://<serverurl>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project_slug_id>/testcase/<testcase_slug_id></id>
  3. <id>https://<serverurl>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project_slug_id>/testcase//urn:com.ibm.rqm:testcase:12345</id>
  4. <id>https://<serverurl>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project_name_encoded>/testcase/<testcase_slug_id></id>

All of them created new test cases.

When I tried PUT, getting 400 error resonse with error message 'javax.xml.bind.UnmarshalException: unexpected element (uri:"http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom", local:"feed")'

Hi Andrew,


The url and method is correct. The problem is with your body xml. 

As the wiki stated that the body xml should be in format of 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
      <entry>
           <id>resource ID</id>
           <content>
                 resource XML
           </content>
       </entry>
</feed>

Something similar to 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
<entry>       
<id>https://<server_url>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project_name>/testcase/urn:com.ibm.rqm:testcase:2</id>
<content>
<ns19:testcase
xmlns:ns19="http://jazz.net/xmlns/alm/qm/v0.1/"
xmlns:ns3="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
xmlns:ns21="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<ns3:title type="text">Test updated</ns3:title>
<ns19:weight>500</ns19:weight>
</ns19:testcase>
</content>
</entry>
<entry>
<id>https://<server_url>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project_name>/testcase/urn:com.ibm.rqm:testcase:20</id>
<content>
<ns19:testcase
xmlns:ns19="http://jazz.net/xmlns/alm/qm/v0.1/"
xmlns:ns2="http://schema.ibm.com/vega/2008/"
xmlns:ns3="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
xmlns:ns21="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<ns3:title type="text">Test updated 1</ns3:title>
<ns19:weight>1000</ns19:weight>
</ns19:testcase>
</content>
</entry>
</feed>
Add the proper xmlns for the tags you would like to update i.e. ns3 for updating creator under <ns3:creator>.
You should also add the proper headers. Please go through the wiki for more clarification.

Thanks,

@Monika thanks now the HTTP POST method work correctly but it creates new test cases. My requirement is update test cases in bulk. Is it possible using qm REST API? 


Monika Rajput commented Dec 04 '20, 8:35 a.m.

@Andrew, Please update the ID of each test case to the ID with your existing test case which you would like to update under <id> tag. 


Thanks


Andrew Ciaz commented Dec 04 '20, 10:26 a.m.

Hi Andrew,


The bulk upload is supported on POST requests only. Please see jazz.net wiki Bulk Upload for more information.
