Access Defects via Rest in Alm 12.2

Hello guys,

I have an issue while trying to access the a defect using the sample code from the documentation in a Java client.

It seems like the athentication loses its status and the user is not logged in any more.


Here is the code that was adapted from the documentation:



public static void testReadDefect() throws Exception {
AlmConnector alm = new AlmConnector();

RestConnector conn = RestConnector.getInstance();
conn.init(new HashMap<String, String>(), Constants.HOST2,
Constants.DOMAIN, Constants.PROJECT);

alm.login("admin", "alm123");

System.out.println("The user is in: "+ alm.isAuthenticated());

String defectUrl = conn.buildEntityCollectionUrl("defect");
defectUrl += "/1";

System.out.println (defectUrl);

Map<String, String> requestHeaders = new HashMap<String, String>();
requestHeaders.put("Accept", "application/xml");

Response res = conn.httpGet(defectUrl, null, requestHeaders);

String postedEntityReturnedXml = res.toString();
System.out.println (postedEntityReturnedXml);



If I execute this method I get the following output:


The user is in: null
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
<title>Error 401 Authentication failed. Browser based integrations - to login append '?login-form-required=y' to the url you tried to access.</title>
<body><h2>HTTP ERROR 401</h2>
<p>Problem accessing /qcbin/rest/domains/DEFAULT/projects/ion_test/defects/1. Reason:
<pre> Authentication failed. Browser based integrations - to login append '?login-form-required=y' to the url you tried to access.</pre></p><hr><i><small>Powered by Jetty://</small></i><hr/>




I have to mention that, The user is in: null,  is correct because means that the user is authenticated. But when I try to access the defects stops beeing ok.


In case you need the documentation you need to access:  


Do you know why?


Many thanks!
