Any workaround for updating read-only fields in Jama

  • 1.  Any workaround for updating read-only fields in Jama

    Posted 02-22-2017 06:25
    In Jama(2015.5) we were able to update read-only fields with the SOAP API but in Jama-8.10.2 standard channel the API fails to update read-only fields.
    What are the options we have in order to update read-only fields in jama-8.10 ?

    Hi Sindhu,

    Are you continuing to use the SOAP API in 8.10, or have you transitioned to the REST API? The REST API will have the capability to update read-only fields with Jama 8.13; it does not currently.

    If you are experiencing this issue with SOAP, please let me know and I will investigate further, as I have not heard of any changes in SOAP (which has an EOL of June 2017).

    Thanks Christina for updating.
    We have stopped using SOAP as there won't be support in coming days.
    We are trying with REST API and Jama version we upgraded to is Jama-8.10.2 standard channel.

    This is the error I get from REST call:
    "meta": { "status": "Bad Request", "timestamp": "2017-02-21T05:55:37.734+0000", "message": "You cannot set read-only fields. fields: unable_to_test_reason$76"

    This is a major show stopper for us. Please help.

    So you say, REST API won't update read-only fields.

    Is there any other alternative to update readonly customfields?
    There should be some way to update as on one hand you provide a feature to create read-only fields and on the other hand there is no way for users to populate such customfields.

    There is no workaround; it simply does not exist for REST yet. It will be available in 8.13 (so if you are on our Standard channel, you will see it in the next Standard release, which will likely be 8.14).

    Please let me know the release date for Jama-8.14 Standard.

    Also please let me know how we update read-only customfields from Jama UI.

    Hi Sindhu,

    There are no release notes stating this as a problem because it isn't considered a defect—we have been releasing updates to REST gradually to bring it up to parity with SOAP and introduce new features.

    The release date for 8.14 Standard should be the last week of March (pending on-time regression testing; I can't say a certain date). 

    To update read-only fields, the Read-only toggle would have to be turned off via Admin > Item Types > [item type] > Config.

    I'm sorry I do not have a workaround to provide you via REST.

    In that case we recently got license for Standard Jama-8.10.2.
    Can we use the same license when we upgrade to Standard Jama-8.14?

    Sindhu, yes, that license will work when you upgrade. The license is tied to the channel type (in your case, Standard), so until it expires you can upgrade as often as a release is available in your channel.
