Applies to QAComplete 14.4, last modified on June 20, 2024

Returns a filtered list of requirements declared in the specified QAComplete project.

Use the operation to get a list of all the requirements registered in a QAComplete project. This operation is equivalent to the /project/{ProjectId}/requirements (GET) operation, but this one allows you to send a large filter string.

To get parameters of an individual requirement by its ID, use the …/requirements/{Id} (GET) operation.


Basic authentication using a user’s login and password. See Authentication for details.

Security Rights

The authenticating user must belong to a security group that has the Read privilege for Requirements.

URL parameters

ProjectId  :  integer, required

The ID of the project.

offset  :  integer, default: 0

The number of requirements to skip before counting the returned requirements. The default value is 0, which is the offset of the first item. For details, see Paging Through Results Using Offset and Limit.

limit  :  integer, default: 25
