Applies to QAComplete 12.31 SaaS & On-Premises, last modified on September 12, 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Since release 10.2, this functionality is obsolete and is supported for backward compatibility only.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.

Replaces the defect information with that from the specified Bug object. Uninitialized properties are cleared.

You usually first call Bugs_Load to get a defect by ID, change some of its properties and then pass the updated object to Bugs_Update.

Requirements

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

Parameters

The operation uses the following parameters:

AuthenticationData  :  AuthenticationData, required

An AuthenticationData object containing the login information and the project ID that contains the defect.

Bug  :  Bug, required

A Bug object with the updated defect information.

SendEmailAlert  :  string, required

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

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

Result

None.

Remarks

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.

Example

Sample Code

To view sample code that shows how to use the Bugs_Update operation to update a defect’s status, see Change Defect Status.

To view sample code that shows how to use the operation to update several properties of an item in your project, see Change Item Properties.
