Requirement links in RQM

Samanwita Majumdar (5033740) | asked Dec 13 '12, 6:59 a.m.
I am linking a collection to a test plan in RQM and when I try to update the test plan through RQM API (PUT) it fails and returns an invalid user / password error. However the moment I remove the Requirement Link from the test plan the update (PUT) starts working. However that does not need my needs.

Next I tried a very strange thing , I added 2 associated RM project areas to RQM and then the PUT for test plans worked fine even with the Requirement Links in place. I am not able to understand what is the rational behind such an implementation. Could any body explain the same.
