RQMUrlUtility - Using GET command to export a test case to a xml file

Suresh peela (3134) | asked Dec 04 '12, 11:47 a.m.

Started on Jazz 2 days ago.

I am using RQM 4.0 and an RQMUrlUtility to export a test case as a xml out put. I am using the following URL

java -jar RQMUrlUtility.jar -command GET -user <user> -password <pwd> -filepath C:\\DownLoad_XML.txt -url https:<server>:9443/qm/service/

where 1065 is the test case id in the QM.

It repeatedly failes with a 400 - Bad Request. Do any of you see a problem with the syntax. 

My Primary goal is to find a way to link a test case to a business requirement in RM. Manually it is achieved by using the 'Requirement Links' fields for the test case. 

Or the reverse is also fine, a way to populate the link fields 'Validated By' in the Requirements in RM while uploading requirements via a csv file. 

Please advise.

The "Quality%20Manager" portion of the -url argument is supposed to be the project area alias.  Its likely test case 1065 is not in a project area named "Quality Manager".  The alias is generally the same as the name of the project area, unless the project area has been renamed.  This URL provides a feed which includes the aliases:

 A couple of comments:

-I agree the problem is likely with the project area alias.  If not, please use Poster and/or HttpRequester and post the HTTP response content.
-See the Notes at the top of
-Consider using Poster and/or HttpRequester instead of the RQM URL Utility.
-Consider using the RQM OSLC API.

 Thanks a lot for the replies. I was able to fix the issue as below.

The URL I tried using the project alias was as below

<server>:9443/qm/service/ _QM/testcase/

The point i missed was there was a space between _Project and _QM. Once I took care of it by renaming the alias as below (using a '+' ), the URL utlity worked and I could pull down a test case as xml.
