Open defect creation dialog directly with external weblink

Steffen Padberg (132) | asked Mar 22 '22, 6:48 a.m.


I am developing a GUI tool suited for Testers using a jazz backend, they have access and overview for test cases, requirements and test results in this tool. When they find a bug, they should create a defect in jazz, but at the moment they have to use the browser and go to test case -> test case execution record -> previous result details -> test run -> defects -> create defect. Then a prefilled creation dialog in a popup window is displayed.
To make this more efficient, is there a way to create a weblink which opens this creation dialog directly (knowing the configuration context etc.)? Is there a possibility to change the prefilled fields?

I could do it like this: programmatically, but I want the user to use the jazz environment directly in this case. 

Any help is very appreciated, thank you very much!

You might want to read If an OSLC server supports a delegated creation dialog, you can discover its URI through standard discovery from the OSLC Service Provider Catalog. Whether a delegated creation dialog supports specifying prefilled data such as configuration context is implementation dependent.
