Hi. There is a JSON web service which provides usefull information for CA PPM users.
Is it possible to invoke it from CA PPM via GEL Script?
Which additional configurarions or libraries does it require?
Which limitations does it have?
Thank you in advance.
Yes, parsing JSON file/data should be possible. CA PPM lib has json.jar file. You should be able to utilize the classes/methods from that package to parse JSON data in GEL code.
* No additional library files required.
You can refer to GEL Script consuming CA PPM REST API where CA PPM REST api is consumed and extracted values by converting connection response to JSON.
Thank you Prashank! Very useful.
I see that tha article is only for self-consuming the CA PPM RESTful WebServices.
Could you provide a general guideline for adapting this to an external RESTful WebService ?
Is as simple as changing the httpRESTURL / remoteURL ?
Or do you need more variables to take into consideration?
You just need to change httpRESTURL value and it will work for external web services as well. Try hard coding the url and then set property accordingly. let me know if you need any help with that.
Hi @Prashank Singh,I cannot access the link to the blog post. I believe it was not migrated to this new platform. Is there anyway you can recreate the blog post here?Regards,Gustavo
