Hi
I have created RTC Custom Link Type named as :----   OWC Custom Links1(Shown below when we click the Custom Link type which type of windows open)
RTC CUSTOM LINKS I HAVE CREATED

The code for this one is :-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?eclipse version="3.2"?>
<plugin>
   <extension
         point="com.ibm.team.repository.common.linkTypes">
       <linkType
             id="com.ibm.team.workitem.example.linktype.owcwork"
             constrained="false"
             internal="false">
          <target>
             <endpoint
                   displayName="OWC Custom Links1"
                   id="owccustomLinks1"
                   multiplicity="0..n">
                <itemReferenceType
                      itemTypeName="WorkItem"
                      packageURI="com.ibm.team.workitem"/>
             </endpoint>
          </target>
          <source>
             <endpoint
                   displayName="OWCSpecial"
                   id="owcspecial"
                   multiplicity="0..1">
                <itemReferenceType
                      itemTypeName="WorkItem"

sorry, I don't understand the question..

that selection you outlined is a dropdown box.

a 'Related Artifact' link is a different type than your custom linktype.
a 'Related Artifact' is assumed to be a link to content OUTSIDE RTC,
as you would have used one of the specific links otherwise. (Related Workitem vs Related Artifact)

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the reply.
Basically Sam i want to create a Related Artifact type- links type where i want to create another link type with the same functionality used by the Related Artifacts.
As for example i want to create a  OWC Related Artifacts Link type name and want to create the same functionality used by Related Artifacts.

Ok, so you want to have a new Linktype NAME that acts like Related Artifact.
it has a label and a url link to anything.

Here is the definition of the RelatedArtifact link, from plugin com.ibm.team.workitem.common, plugin.xml.. note that only one side is a workitem. I don't know how this behaves or if there is special code..

<code>
       <linkType
             id="com.ibm.team.workitem.linktype.relatedartifact"
             constrained="false"
             internal="false">
          <target>
             <endpoint
                   displayName="%linktype.relatedartifacts.name"
                   icon="icons/obj16/relatartif_obj.gif"
                   id="relatedArtifact"
                   multiplicity="0..n"/>
          </target>
          <source>
             <endpoint
                   displayName="%linktype.relatedworkitems.name"
                   icon="icons/obj16/related_obj.gif"
                   id="relateWorkItem"
                   multiplicity="0..n">
                <itemReferenceType
                      itemTypeName="WorkItem"
                      packageURI="com.ibm.team.workitem"/>
             </endpoint>
          </source>
       </linkType>
</code>
