I'm seeking help to accomplish the following
Incrementally transfer history records of an item from PTC Integrity to an external database. Besides that, extract only a subset of fields, contained in the history records.
- Get the timestamps of existing history records of the item in PTC Integrity,
- Get the timestamps of the history records already stored in the external database,
- Determine which timestamps from PTC Integrity are missing in the external database,
- Get the missing history records from PTC Integrity one by one and store them in the external database
- The only way to get the history records seems to be using an "im viewissue --showHistory" call.
- Using this call, it doesn't seem to be possible to reduce the output to a subset of fields contained in the item.
This leads to:
- Necessity to retrieve complete history of the item, including all history records and all fields.
- The Java API reads and instantiates the returned WorkItem object completely, before the client code can access it.
- For bigger items with long history this results in:
* Extremely long running operations
* Excessive traffic (hundreds of MB), excessive uncontrolled memory consumption
* Excessive and uncontrolled memory consumption by the Java API library (up to 100GB)
1. Is there a way to get just timestamps of the history records for an item, without any other fields?
2. Is there a way to get only a subset of the history records for an item, for example by date range?
3. Is there a way to reduce the output of the "im viewissue" command to a subset of fields, like with "im issues"?
4. Is it possible to read the XML output of the PTC Integrity server directly (like in AbstractCmdRunner.executeWithXML(), which is not a part of the public API)?
Thank you very much in advance, any help is highly appreciated!
