Often times, you might have data requirements which are documented in external data source files such as Comma separated Value (CSV) or Microsoft Excel worksheet. Microsoft Excel and Word are popular document formats used by many test organizations to author, store and maintain their test assets. These document formats are easy to use and widely available.
So if any of your project teams are working on such external data sources and want to import the data involving relevant image files into IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM), they can make use of the RQMExcelImporter utility.
In fact, RQM software helps teams share information seamlessly, use automation to accelerate project schedules and report on metrics for informed release decisions.
Rational Quality Manager helps quality assurance teams by providing the below functionalities.
Below is one such scenario which will describe how to import a few test assets and an image specifically into RQM. It also describes a defect behavior of the imported images (part of Test Case Design section in RQM), not getting exported to PDF file, though the import was successful.
For example: Image is successfully imported into Test case design section, but when we create a comprehensive PDF export, the image does not get exported. Interestingly, if you manually cut past an image within the Test Case Design section in RQM, the import gets exported to PDF successfully.
Debugging this problem, prompted a couple of questions like...
Let's analyze this scenario now...
Below is the snapshot of the data which is documented in the MS Excel worksheet.
Following is the Configuration file (CFG file) which will map to each entries present in the rows and columns of this worksheet .
Using the RQMExcelImporter utility, import the Excel data into RQM and you should see the data layout as shown below:
So, once you have the data imported, you can export this data to available PDF formats in RQM.
However the exported PDF does not display the image as you can see in the below snapshot:

You may come across situation where you do not want a user in your Project Area to view data in a particular stream.

If you are looking for a simple tool to perform GET operation(s) on IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM), then you are looking at the right post.
The RQM artifacts are exposed in XML format through the RQM's Reportable REST (REpresentation and State Transfer) API's. If you are in need to perform a quick GET (get XML) of the RQM artifacts without having to worry about the REST syntax and other nitty-gritties, then the "RQM GET" utility is a good option. This utility is built on the basis of the RQMUrlUtility and provides an interactive way to download the artifact XML using the artifact web IDs.
RQMGET requires a Java 6 (1.6) or greater.
-password : Login Password
-url : Https Url for the RQM application
Here is a sample command line trace of events on the RQM GET utility used to download artifact from an RQM server.
C:\>java -jar rqmget.jar -user clmadmin -password clmadmin -url http
You can download the RQM GET utility by clicking on RQMGETUtility.zip.

Post upgrade of your CLM application you may come across the below error while trying to access any Project Areas in Rational Quality Manager.
The error occurs when QM is not deployed correctly which could be the result of an incomplete / improper upgrade process and when WebSphere cache was not cleaned prior to deploying 5.0.2 war file.
Checking the logs reveals the below error:
You may follow the below steps to redeploy QM:
3. Re-deploy QM.war
4. Redo the group mapping in WebSphere by following the below steps:
Map security roles to a user or repository group:
a) Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications.
e) Enter a search string to return your group names from the LDAP server. Click Search to run the query.
