Do the RM client extensions provide access to the comments in a module?

Christian El Salloum (11) | asked Nov 04 '21, 12:47 p.m.

We would like to write an extension that needs to access the comments of an artifact. However, the documentation doesn't mention how to do this. 

Is it in general possible to access comments via the RM client extension API?

 Use DNG reportable API to get access to the comments.

Thank you very much for this feedback!

Our current plugin (which does also a lot of other stuff in a particular view) is using the RM client extension API. 

Is your proposal, that we extend the plugin by making a js fetch call to the REST endpoint, so mixing RM client extension API and REST calls to the DNGReportableRestAPI?

Client Extension API does not provide support for comments so you need to send HTTP Get request to reportable API.

You have allcthe neccessary data in client extension api including configuration and components.

It is common to mix client extension api with oslc and reportable api.
