Applies to QAComplete 12.32 SaaS, last modified on October 21, 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Since release 10.2, this functionality is obsolete and is supported for backward compatibility only.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.

Adds a new requirement into the database and returns the ID of the created item.

Requirements

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

Parameters

The operation uses the following parameters:

AuthenticationData  :  AuthenticationData, required

An AuthenticationData object containing the login information and the project ID to which you want to add a release.

FunctionalSpecs  :  , required

The FunctionalSpec object that contains the requirement information.

SendEmailAlert  :  string, required

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

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

NewNotes  :  string, required

New note attached to the requirement. Specify empty string if you do not want to create a note.

Result

The ID of the added requirement.

Remarks

The FunctionalSpec 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

C#

string login = "john.doe@example.com";
string password = "p@ssword";
int projId = 10372;

ServiceSoapClient service = new ServiceSoapClient();

// Preparing AuthenticationData
LoginInfo loginInfo = service.GetLoginInfo("", login, password);
AuthenticationData authData = new AuthenticationData();
authData.AppCode = loginInfo.AppCode;
authData.UserId = loginInfo.UserId;
authData.PassCode = password;
authData.DeptId = loginInfo.DeptId;
authData.ProjId = projId;

// Preparing the FunctionalSpec object
FunctionalSpec requirement = new FunctionalSpec();
requirement.Title = "API-XXXX - Add Visual Studio Support";
requirement.StatusCode = "Awaiting Approval";

// Adding the requirement
int FunctSpecID = service.FunctionalSpecs_Add(authData, requirement, "N", "");
Console.WriteLine("ID of the added requirement:" + FunctSpecID);

Java

String login = "john.doe@example.com";
String password = "p@ssword";
int projId = 10372;

ServiceSoap service = new Service().getServiceSoap12();

// Preparing AuthenticationData
LoginInfo loginInfo = service.getLoginInfo("", login, password);
AuthenticationData authData = new AuthenticationData();
authData.setAppCode(loginInfo.getAppCode());
authData.setUserId(loginInfo.getUserId());
authData.setPassCode(password);
authData.setDeptId(loginInfo.getDeptId());
authData.setProjId(projId);

// Preparing the FunctionalSpec object
FunctionalSpec requirement = new FunctionalSpec();
requirement.setTitle("API-XXXX - Add Visual Studio Support");
requirement.setStatusCode("Awaiting Approval");

// Adding the requirement
int FunctSpecId = service.functionalSpecsAdd(authData, requirement, "", null);
System.out.println("ID of the added requirement:" + FunctSpecId);
