Updates the fields of test set items in the specified test set.

Use the operation to update individual fields of all the test set items in a test set.

To replace the entire list of items in a test set, use the …/testsets/{Id}/items (PUT) 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 Update privilege for Test Sets.

Request Format

To update fields of test set items, send a PATCH request to the following URL:

URL parameters

Id  :  integer, required

The ID of the test set, whose items’s fields you want to update.

ProjectId  :  integer, required

The ID of the project, to which the test set belongs.

Body parameters

In the request body, pass the RequestTestSetItemPatch JSON object that describes the fields of test set items to be updated:

  "Items": [
      "IsActive": "boolean",
      "IsStoppedOnFail": "boolean",
      "AssigneeUserId": "int",
      "DefaultHostId": "int",
      "Seq": "int"

Items  :  array of objects, required

An array of TestSetItemPatchEntity objects that describe test item fields to be updated.

Field values you do not specify remain unchanged.

The operation updates fields of all test set items the test set has. The objects the array contains must correspond to proper items in a test set.

Specifies whether the test set item is enabled (active).

IsStoppedOnFail  :  boolean

AssigneeUserId  :  integer

The ID of the user to whom the item is assigned. 0 if the item is not assigned to anyone.

DefaultHostId  :  integer

The ID of the host to which the item is assigned. 0 if the item is not assigned to any host.

Seq  :  integer

The ordinal number of the item in the test set.
