0008327: Unable to get the fk_id for uploading attachments to the single step of testcase
Using the Testlink API Client of Python ( [^]) I'm not able to upload an attachment to a single step.

tls.uploadAttachment('%s' % filename, fk_id, 'execution_tcsteps')

I need the fk_id. I've tried to get from the last execution but the XMLRPC API doesn't return anything

We do not are responsible for python client

Just tested on PHP sample clients provided by TL and the result is still the same. I can't get the FK_ID

Used another language (below JAVA). I need the fkId for uploading the attachment. I know the other parameters.

public Attachment uploadAttachment(Integer fkId, String fkTable, String title, String description, String fileName,
            String fileType, String content) throws TestLinkAPIException {
        return this.miscService.uploadAttachment(fkId, fkTable, title, description, fileName, fileType, content);

*downloads the file from* [^]
*edits the infos about the server and the dev key*

Compile it with javac and then java TestLinkApi.class

The code works but only if I provide the fkId statically. I want to get it automatically from the API but I don't know how.

I need steps FROM LOGICAL POINT OF VIEW I can test only on PHP
2018-07-10 13:20   
Step 1: Reports test case result with reportTCResult(tcid, tpid, buildname, status, notes, platform, execduration, timestamp, steps)
Step 2: Uploads the attachment with uploadAttachment(file_path, fkid, fktable)
The error is in the latest API call where I need the fkid dynamically. I can't pass it as a static value. If I need to upload 8 screenshot I can't guess the fkid.

there is no method to get exec id for a step, you will need to change reportTCResult to return exec id for each step or create a method that using test case exec ID, will return info about exec id for each test case step execution
Meanwhile, your workaround is to use the whole test case exec ID (if reportTCResult() returns it) and attach all files to it
