Creation of Workitem comments over WebService fails

Postby poldi » Tue Aug 03, 2010 3:31 pm


I'm writing a small .net C# WebService client that should add new comments to a work item.
Unfortunately without success. Until yet I wasn't able to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
We are using Polarion (ALM) with the build number

I started by using the wsdl.exe tool to get the web service proxies. For that I had to use
the following command line:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC>wsdl /sharetypes /n:PolarionWS /o:c:\temp\PolarionWS.cs ... rvice?wsdl ... rvice?wsdl ... rvice?wsdl ... rvice?wsdl ... rvice?wsdl /pd:mydomain/pp:password /pu:user

and added the generated code to my project. From another post in this forum I downloaded the SessionExtension.cs file and added that
also to the project.

Following the code I used test the web service (just a prototype):

Code: Select all

                sessionService.logIn(section.User, section.Password);


                Project p = Container.Resolve<ProjectWebServiceService>().getProject("PG_PH_PJ");

                string suburi = @"subterra:data-service:objects:/default/PG_PH_PJ${Module}Automated Test";

                Module autoModule = trackerService.getModuleByUri(suburi);

                bool failed = true;
                WorkItem workItem;
                string workItemUri = null;

                    Project project = Container.Resolve<ProjectWebServiceService>().getProject(section.PolarionProjectId);

                    if (project.unresolvable)
                        System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("Failed to load project " + section.PolarionProjectId + ".");
                        workItem = new WorkItem();
                        workItem.project = project;
                        workItem.type = new EnumOptionId();
               = "automatedtest";
                        workItem.title = "My Titel";
                        workItem.description = new Text();
                        workItem.description.type = "text/html";
                        workItem.description.content = "Ipsum lorem....";
                        workItem.moduleURI = autoModule.uri;
                        workItemUri = trackerService.createWorkItem(workItem);
                catch(Exception e)

                //Until here every things seams to work fine. The workItemUri returned by createWorkItem looks ok.


                    workItem = trackerService.getWorkItemByUri(workItemUri); //From here it starts getting weird
                    //The workItem.moduleURI, workItem.project and a few more properties are empty

                    Text comment = new Text();
                    comment.content = "<p>Test</p>";
                    comment.type = "text/html";
                    comment.contentLossy = false;
                    trackerService.createComment(workItemUri, comment); //this call throws the exception.

1. After the log in and few additional calls to the webservices, I tell the trackerService to create the work item.
The first impression is that the call is successful, because I get back a new uri for that work item

2. After the call

Code: Select all

 workItem = trackerService.getWorkItemByUri(workItemUri);
my impression changes.
The returned work item seems to be uncompleted. A couple of properties (workItem.moduleURI, workItem.project,...)
are not set to any values.

3. A couple of lines later the call of

Code: Select all

 trackerService.createComment(workItemUri, comment);

fails by throwing the following exception.

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException was unhandled

I spent more than two days trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas, tips?

Best regards

the problem is that you rollback the transaction you created the work item in.
You should set failed = false as last statement of the code that is runs in the transaction.
