In our first episode, Island Training took on a challenge for IBM’s InterConnect conference: create an interesting and engaging live demo of an end-to-end DevOps process for the Expo Hall. We set a 10-minute limit for the full demo cycle, from requirement to deployed personalized tickets. In Part 1, we explained how we took advantage of the links between DNG and RTC to create work items from requirements.
In this chapter, we use the REST API to generate our deliverable text file.
For our demonstration, we need to create a text file with all the names that we gather from Drink Order requirements. Manually creating the file will eat valuable time from the 10-minute demo—automation is critical to the demo’s speed/success. So, we need to programmatically connect to either RTC or DNG. But how?
