How to add a category value to an existing Category in ETM using API

Bharath Rao (915240) | asked Dec 11 '23, 6:45 a.m.

 In an ETM project area, I have a Category "TestCat" defined with values "Test1" and "Test2" defined for Test Cases.

I would like to add a new value "Test3" to TestCat. How can I achieve this?

Here are the steps:

Note: To get a Category Value for a Test Case Category, you can perform a GET on the Test Case which will provide the Category value URL to be used in Step (a)

a) Perform a GET using RestClient on the URL of an existing Category value that is part of the Category where the value must be added.

https://<hostname>/qm/service/<PA>/category/<Category ID>


https://<hostname>/qm/service/<PA UUID>/category/

b) In the GET response remove the identifier <nsx:identifier>...</nsx:identifier> and updated <nsx:updated>...</nsx:updated> blocks in the XML. Modify the title block <nsx:title>...</nsx:title> with the intended category value name.

c) Perform a PUT with the modified XML content from step (b) on the Category URL with a unique external ID.

https://<hostname>/qm/service/<PA ID>/category/<ExternalID>


Accept: application/xml

Content-Type: application/xml


https://<hostname>/qm/service/<PA UUID>/category/MyTestCategory1
