IDs in RQM
Before start using RQM rest api to manipulate the resources, its good to understand the different kinds of IDs in RQM.
Numerical ID unique for the resource within a Rational Quality Manager server. For many resources, these IDs are shown in Rational Quality Manager. When using an internal ID in the Reportable REST API to refer to a resource, the ID MUST be prepended by urn:com.ibm.rqm: <resource>:
https://<jazz server>:<port>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project>/testcase/urn:com.ibm.rqm:testcase:<internal id>
A unique ID provided by the user when creating a new resource with a PUT. Resources created in the Rational Quality Manager UI will not have external IDs. An external ID can contain any characters allowed in a URI
https://<jazz server>:<port>/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/<project>/testcase/<external id>
RQM URL Utility
The Rational Quality Manager URL Utility is a sample, stand-alone, Java command-line application, with which you can use REST API to upload, download, or delete test artifacts to or from the Rational Quality Manager server
