Report REST API usage for RRC&RPE: how to use collectionURI, viewName


Regis Coqueret (11111) | asked Oct 19 '12, 4:50 a.m.
I can not find out how to form a correct data source URI to fetch requirements for a given view or collection.
Using RRC 4.0 and RPE 1.1.2.2 (with fiw for OAuth1a).

The syntax explained on https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RRCReportableRestAPI is obsolete?

Made some progress:
- creatd a view 'SelfService'
- URL https://.../text?projectURI=_byUWFsWmEeGLPdfJvx2A4w&viewName=SelfService yields nothing: "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><ds:dataSource totalCount="0" xmlns:ds="http://jazz.net/xmlns/alm/rm/datasource/v0.1"/>"

- have inspected the HTML element in FireFox and picked up the span tag (containing https://server:9443/rm/views/_hT9bMBnQEeKBkPeKWs5CDQ) and then forming a different URL:
https://.../text?projectURI=_byUWFsWmEeGLPdfJvx2A4w&viewURI=_hT9bMBnQEeKBkPeKWs5CDQ

- this works well, including rich text

QUESTIONS:

  • ISN'T THERE AN EASIER WAY TO GET TO THE VIEW URI ?
  • WHY IS viewName not working ?
  • WHERE IS THE UP TO DATE RRC 4.0 REST API DOCUMENTATION ?
Thanks for any help or pointer

You can also get the viewURI by clicking the pencil icon on the view and select "Show Link", you will get a URL like this:
https://.../rdm/web#action=com.ibm.rdm.web.pages.showProjectDashboard&projectURI=https%3A%2F%2F...%2Fjts%2Fprocess%2Fproject-areas%2F_Ehe6UBlMEeKtmNW8oGGwkg&filterId=_08klghlMEeKtmNW8oGGwkg

from here just grab the filterId parameter and use it in your request


Regis Coqueret commented Oct 19 '12, 12:37 p.m.

ok got it ... viewURI is same as filterId, because 'views' were previously known as 'saved filters' right ?

correct, this is the easiest way to get the viewURI since RRC 4.0

Hi Regis,
 I just tested with the following
https://.../rm/publish/resources?projectURI=_Ehe6UBlMEeKtmNW8oGGwkg&viewName=All%20Terms
and I got the elements back correctly.

The wiki you're referring to is not obsolete, this syntax does work

Is the view called "SelfService" or "Self Service"? Spaces do make the difference

I do not have white space. Which level do you have server side?

Does this happen with other views as well?
