Please join our Bangalore support team on Tuesday, May 25th, 3-4pm IST, for an informative open mic on Managing Rational Performance Tester and Rational Functional Tester test assets in Rational Quality Manager.
Briefing for the Topic
We will start the session with a brief discussion on RFT, RPT and RQM tools and the main course covering the integrations
of RFT; RPT with RQM and then list out the benefits, value addition this integration provides to customers. We will also have a demo towards the end of the discussion and a summary on the concepts discussed.
About Rational Quaiity Manager
IBM® Rational® Quality Manager is collaborative, Web-based, quality management software for comprehensive test planning and test asset management throughout the software life cycle. Built on the Jazz™ platform, it is for test teams of all sizes and supports a variety of user roles, such as test manager, test architect, test lead, tester, and lab manager, as well as roles outside of the test organization.
Rational Quality Manager enables users to manage and run automated test scripts created with other test tools by integrating RQM with the testing tools. You can create test scripts in RQM that refer to existing tests that were created with IBM® Rational® Functional Tester, Rational Performance Tester, Rational Service Tester, Rational Robot, and Rational AppScan Tester Edition.
IBM® Rational® Functional Tester (RFT), IBM® Rational® Performance Tester (RPT), IBM® Rational® Quality Manager (RQM) customers and IBM internal contacts.

Have you ever run into a problem with Rational Quality Manager (RQM) where the Excel Import fails with the following error? An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0x1d) was found in the element
Well, if not, consider yourself lucky! Here are a few ways you could run into this error and a potentially way to overcome it.
Here's how you can run into this problem:
Perform a excel import from your Excel Sheet and you notice "ERR
Consider taking a closer look a the debug logs and you might find:
Export error log:
11/13/2015 5:40:54 AM: ERROR: <Unknown Caller Context>: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
Debug log file:
Log file location : C:
11/17/2015 11:58:05 AM: sending testscript0 named US40
Here's why this could be happening:
The error recorded here attributed to a Invalid Character inline with the plain text failing to get exported.
Here's how you can find the character:
1.Export the Excel to XML (use Export to File option).
Now fix the problem!
1.Copy the Excel Cell contents to a text editor and retype the erroneous text again and paste it back to the Excel cell.

You might be familiar with Rational Quality Manager (RQM) REST API's to query your artifacts. The RQM Reportable REST API allows a user to perform CRUD type operations on test resources via XML sequences to the RQM server. This article describes about how to manipulate resources like (test case, test execution record, test results, etc..) in RQM using REST API
I can help you! There are Cheat Sheets available for a few RQM REST URL's, but not specifically for this query. You are looking for help with constructing a REST URL for this query.
Below you'll find a Sample REST URL to perform the GET operation to query Testcase execution Record (TCER) filtered for a specific Testcase.
Choose to use the following URL. which has been tested and working
This gives the TCER's filtered using a Testcase ID from REST Client.
I hope you find this helpful!

CFG files are used to import data into Rational Quality Manager. The file must be in a specific format for the import to work properly. Here is a sample CFG file created for associating a Single Testplan to Multiple Testcases. Also, each Testcase is associated with multiple Testscripts, which will allow you to use with IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM) Excel Import utility.
// this configuration file will create a single test case from the defined cells and link to all
// since we aren't defining an ID to use, the tool will create one based on the excel worksheet
// We want to start looking for scripts after row 8
// the literal "execution" will be put into the step type tag, so all steps will be of type execution
// a new script starts when we encounter an empty row
// we want to use the data we got for each test script to create a test case
// test case defined with definite cell locations
//Config for Testplan
