Integrity Command Line Timeentries

Using the Integrity CLI to extract time entries for analysis and processing.

 

I use something like this;

 

im timeentries --hostname=host --port=port --filter=user:username --filter=entrydata:"between START and END"

(note don't type this in by hand, I have wrapper code written in Python.

I also use mksapiviewer.exe to process the command output as XML and parse it. This all works nicely).

 

The above example extracts the time entries for a user user between the dates START and END. I now have a user case where I would like to extract all time entries recorded against a given Issue ID in a specific time range, regardless of which user entered them.

 

Looking at the help

im timeentries --usage

I see there is a sub-option in the filter section

 

issue=<expression>

However, I am not sure what 'expression' means.

I have tried the obvious approach..

 

im timeentries --hostname=host --port=port --filter=issue:ISSUEID --filter:entrydate:"between START and END"

 

but  I get the following error in my XML:

<Message>MKS124814: Cannot show view information: You must specify an operator for numeric</Message>

It is not obvious to me what the above error is referring to, and what exactly "specify an operator for numeric" means.

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

thanks,

will

Re: Integrity Command Line Timeentries

For the issue filter, the expression is a single issue or range of issues. For a single issue, you need to use = before the item ID.  The CLI reference says you should be able to use AND within the filter, but I found that didn't work. 

Instead I used the same method as for si filter options:

"Using commas between the filteroptions serves to build logical "OR" statements between them, allowing you to create powerful filters. You may also specify multiple --filter=filteroptions on the command line, which effectively creates logical "AND" statements between them." 

 

For example: 

D:/private/IntegrityServers/12.0>im timeentries --filter=issue:=652
652     ascea   24-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   3
652     ascea   23-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
D:/private/IntegrityServers/12.0>im timeentries --filter=issue:"> 1000"
40922   ascea   27-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
40927   ascea   26-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   12
40784   ascea   25-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
D:/private/IntegrityServers/12.0>im timeentries --filter=issue:"> 1000" --filter=issue:"< 40920"
40784   ascea   25-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
D:/private/IntegrityServers/12.0>im timeentries --filter=issue:"> 1000" --filter=issue:=652
D:/private/IntegrityServers/12.0>im timeentries --filter=issue:"> 1000",issue:=652
40922   ascea   27-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
40927   ascea   26-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   12
40784   ascea   25-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2
652     ascea   24-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   3
652     ascea   23-Sep-2018     MKS Integrity   2

I hope this helps.

I hope this helps.

Re: Integrity Command Line Timeentries

OK, so using just the numeric value

filter=issue:123

does not constitute an "expression", whereas;

filter=issue:=123

does. I guess that makes sense, although I have to admit its a little un-intuitive.

 

However the solution works like a charm so many thanks.

 

have a great day

will
