RQM REST api extensiondisplayname reverting to defualt value with PUT

Luke Locastro (112) | asked Feb 03 '21, 7:17 a.m.


I'm trying to update testcase steps using the rest api
in our testcases the test case design section has been renamed as "Test Steps" in RQM webpage
I can use a GET method to get the xml
but if i PUT the same xml back the extensiondisplayname of the testcase design section is changed from "Test Steps" back to the default value of "Test Case Design"

is there any way around this?

this is the element, none of the other sections extensionDisplayName is changed
< xmlns="" extensionDisplayName="Test Steps">
<div xmlns="">1.test step</div>

Hi Luke,

We cannot change the names or extensionDisplayName of pre-defined sections.
Only the custom section names can be modified from REST client.

Hi Monika

I'm not trying to change the section header
the header has been set the RQM web ui, i want it to remain the same 
is this possible?
when I PUT a xml it is reverting the test case design section header back to the default value even when i haven't changed any values in the xml
