How would be the Linux OS Build number if ALM called from Linux via REST

Manually when we start the ALM Test Execution, Windows OS build number is fetched automatically from server side and audited in History Tab, since ALM application is on Windows machine.

but we have developed a REST based framework from which ALM application is interacted from Linux machine using REST API and ALM application resides in Windows machine.

So now do we need to store OS Build Number and Operating System as Windows details or Linux details via REST API?

If Linux, Operating System name can be fetched easily but what would be the way to fetch Linux OS build number?

I have tried to fetch Client OS details from any REST API response headers (user-agent), but no details found there as-well.

  • Hi,

    I assume you're talking about the OS information uploaded while we're performing automatic execution of a test?

    This is actually the OS information of the host, on which the test is executed automatically. And it is uploaded as the properties of a Run entity when the new Run entity is posted, by the test agent. So this information originally comes from the test agent.

    Currently all the test agents are Windows hosts, like UFT or LRP, and I assume you developed your own Linux test agent. So you will need to collect the OS information by your agent, and then when you post the run, upload the OS information as its "Operating System" and "OS Build Number".

    Hope it helps.
