Applies to QAComplete 12.33 SaaS, last modified on November 29, 2019
Since release 10.2, this functionality is obsolete and is supported for backward compatibility only. We recommend that you use QAComplete REST API to access and manage data in QAComplete.

Creates a new defect in QAComplete.

Use the ProjId value in the AuthenticationData parameter to specify the project to create the defect in.

Requirements

The authenticating user must belong to a user group that has the Add privilege for Defects.

Parameters

The operation uses the following parameters:

AuthenticationData  :  AuthenticationData, required

An AuthenticationData object containing the login information and the project ID to create the defect in.

Bug  :  Bug, required

A Bug object containing the defect information.

SendEmailAlert  :  string

Y means send an email alert to the subscribed users after adding the defect.

Any other value (for example, N or empty string) means do not send e-mail alerts.

The parameter is optional in QAComplete 10.2 and later. In QAComplete 10.1 and ealier, it is required.

NewNotes  :  string

A note to add to the defect. Default value: empty string.

Result

An integer ID of the created defect.

Remarks

The Bug object you pass in must have all property values required by your QAComplete instance. You can see the required properties in two places:

  • Required fields for defects:  > Setup > System Configuration > Screen Layouts > Defects > Required Fields.

  • Defect workflow transitions: Defects > Show Defects >  Tools >  Manage Workflows > select status > Select fields for this Transition.

Do not specify the following properties, they are set automatically:

  • DateCreated, DateOpened and DateUpdated are set to the current date and time.

  • UpdateUserId and UserName are set to the authenticating user.

  • If StatusCode contains the word Closed:

    • ClosedBy, ClosedByName, ResolvedBy and ResolvedByName are set to the authenticating user.

    • DateClosed, ActStart and ActFinish are set to the current date and time.

    • PctComplete is set to 100.

  • If StatusCode contains the word Resolved:

    • DateResolved is set to the current date and time.

    • ResolvedBy and ResolvedByName are set to the authenticating user.

The Bug object has matching Id and Name properties, for example, FolderId and FolderName. To set them, specify the value only for the Id property. The corresponding Name property will be set automatically.
