How to get ID of plan varaible

Hi,

I am trying to update value of plan variable but api requires variable ID to update.

http://localhost:8085/build/admin/ajax/updatePlanVariable.action?planKey=SCAN-DO&variableKey=test5&variableValue=value1&variableId=655361

Below url returns the variable context but without variable ID.

http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/plan/SCAN-DO?expand=variableContext

Is there a way to get variable id?

Thanks,

Amey

Hi,

 

"variable_baseline_item" is the table which has the variable name and the value of that variable. This table has the column "VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID"

 

This column has a mapping with table "VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE"

and this table has the mapping with "buildresultsummary" for the build results and the plan names

 

use the below query for getting the required info:

select * from buildresultsummary a, VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE b, variable_baseline_item c
where a.VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID = b.VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID
and c.VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID=b.VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID

The column which you are looking for is most likely "VARIABLE_BASELINE_ITEM_ID" in the table "variable_baseline_item"

 

Please accept the answer if you think it is right so that others can also benefit from it.

Hi Robhit,

Thanks for your reply!

But I am looking for rest API which will feed back "VARIABLE_CONTEXT_BASELINE_ID" by variable name.

I think no such way to get this value using API
