This action checks the ExtraView database for the existence of an issue.

[&strict=no | yes]



The output from the call is of the form Defect #nnnnn exists or Defect #nnnnn does not exist.

The optional parameter strict, with a value of yes, enforces the action to operate only on ALT_ID. If there is no match for the value of the ALT_ID in the specified ID parameter, then the message Invalid Id will be returned.  This means that a matching ID value will be ignored.

The optional access_token parameter allows you to use a valid OAuth2 token obtained with the get_token command.  If you provide the access_token parameter, then the user_id and password parameters should not be provided.  This prevents the password being sent in clear text over your network connection.
