Client

class rtcclient.client.RTCClient(url, username, password, searchpath=None)[source]

A wrapped class for RTC Client to perform all related operations

Parameters:
  • url – the rtc url (e.g. https://your_domain:9443/jazz)
  • username – the rtc username
  • password – the rtc password
  • searchpath – the folder to store your templates. If None, the default search path (/your/site-packages/rtcclient/templates) will be loaded.

Tips: You can also customize your preferred properties to be returned by specified returned_properties when the called methods have this optional parameter, which can also GREATLY IMPROVE the performance of this client especially when getting or querying lots of workitems.

Important Note: returned_properties is an advanced parameter, the returned properties can be found in ClassInstance.field_alias.values(), e.g. myworkitem1.field_alias.values(). If you don’t care the performance, just leave it alone with None.
