Not really sure I understand your question, but if you are looking for the name of the sequence keeping count of test sets, the name is CYCLE - the same as the table name for test sets. I can't see anything deviating from standard here.

So it is your own application that is not working? It doesn't seem to me that this means ALM is to blame. Adding a test set using SQL is not supported as far as I know, and there may be a lot of things happening behind the curtains when using the official APIs or the GUI.

No SQL insert ...

 

Am I the only one?

Hi,

Jan is 100% right: Directly accessing the ALM database via SQL is not at all supported - please don't do it... The ALM data model is not trivial; we all know some parts are from the old Test Director days and evolved over many many years. I'd say reading directly from the database is ok - but inserting into the database might break your whole project.

For example you seem to insert into VC_* tables which are only relevant for projects with version control enabled - and as far as I know the values are only inserted if an item is checked-out and removed after checkin.

That's why we have the OTA and the REST APIs. What exactly do you want to do with your own bespoke REST API? Perhaps we'll find a way to help you using the ALM APIs?

Regards,

Dirk
