run an script on approval completion

Roger Layani (5313238) | asked Nov 12 '12, 4:51 a.m.

we are using RTC as defect tracking and git as SCM.

I would like to associate a Work Item  Approval completion (state approved) with an external script to update our git repository

Has someone  any idea how to implement a such feature?

Hi Roger,

as far as I can tell, there is no such Participant (follow up action) available out of the box. You could have to code a Server extension. shows how that is done as a workshop. I try to blog about API that I come across here: There are several posts that could be interesting to you, for example how to access approvals. You could launch the script using the Java process API.

Ralph Thank for guidance

I have written a java program using JavaAPI to approve from outside RTC

I have the idea to gain the approval email template and add an approve button in his content

the requester request approval in RTC

the approver get approval notification and directly approve from email form

In parralel this update our git repository on approved changeset.

All this works fine!

Thanks for the feedback, you might want to accept the answer that helped.

PS: doing it from outside is often a good idea. You can schedule such programs forexample running a JBE. Instead of addind a button to request approval, ou might want to consider use the API to add the approval in a participant.
