Getting a category ID list through the RTC REST API

Mike Shkolnik (9657160143) | asked Oct 03 '11, 8:10 p.m.
In order to do queries filtered on category, I need to know the category ID (the long string of characters looking something like "_hDbz8EqVEd6HXO10niqZpg")

The API instructions here:

https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ResourceOrientedWorkItemAPIv2

Include the example:

Work Items in category 'X' ordered by Id


rtc_cm:filedAgainst="https://localhost:9443/jazz/resource/itemOid/com.ibm.team.workitem.Category/_hDbz8EqVEd6HXO10niqZpg" /sort=dc:identifier
rtc_cm:filedAgainst="_hDbz8EqVEd6HXO10niqZpg" /sort=dc:identifier


So how do I get a list of all those category IDs?

I know how to get the Project IDs:

https://:9443/jazz/oslc/workitems/catalog

Is there a similar catalog of Category IDs within a project?

Error message:

"The resource identified by this request is only capable of generating responses with characteristics not acceptable according to the request "accept" headers ()."

I would think I need to include the project ID, so I think something may be missing from this syntax.

Now this is strange.

I have just tried browsing to "https://<server>:9443/ccm/oslc/categories" on my 3.0.1 test server, and no error occurs. The server correctly answers with an XML document containing a collection of categories.

Anyway, to include the project ID, try this:

https://<server>:9443/ccm/oslc/categories?oslc_cm.query=dc:title="projectname"

This should return the categories of the "projectname" project. Beware, you may need to URL encode the query before sending it.

 https://<server>:9443/ccm/oslc/categories?oslc_cm.query=dc:title="projectname"  will not filter based on project area name. It will query for the component name.

To filter based on the project area you need to use rtc_cm:projectArea="<project oslc uri>" query.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but I am on 2.0.0.2 ifix5.

I tried your link of &quot;https://&lt;server&gt;:9443/ccm/oslc/categories&quot; and that results in a 404 error (yes, I did change the server name). I think the ccm is dependent on how your server is setup.

Figured it out. The following works:

https://:9443/jazz/oslc/categories.xml

Thanks, you got me most of the way there. :)

To filter based on the project area you need to use rtc_cm:projectArea="<project oslc uri>" query.
"

The <project oslc uri> is the itemId of the project in projetArea artefact.
