Via the Java Api can I programatically update plan branch configuration


Every time I create a new Git branch for a new sprint I want to update the Plan Branch's Source Repository Branch value to the newly created branch. For example sprint/2 is the current branch name and there's now a new branch called sprint/3 that I wish to update it to.

My Plan Branches are fixed. I DO NOT want to have automatically generated plan branches when new git branches are detected (which I used to do but my plan branch variables needed to be updated in the newly generated plan branch and that became too much manual work)

So I would like to create a simple Java program that will iterate over all my plans and update the sprint plan branches to the new git branch. Is this possible? I saw the docs ( which were frankly overwhelming for a non-developer and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to get me started

Many thanks

In your case it would be easiest if submitted the action /branch/admin/config/editChainBranchRepository.action?buildKey=YOUR_BRANCH_NAME and captured what gets sent to the server using FireBug or some other plugin.

Using that data, you'll be able to create a Java program (or even a simple script that uses curl - that updates the branch name to what you want.

Thanks for this but I have captured a lot of data and not really sure how that helps me in any way? Any other clues please?
