If you have created a change set to deliver the document to the source control then you can associate this change set to a task and eventually this task can be associated to the RRC artifact.

how do i get to the change set to associate it with the work item.  I opened up the new file and checked the history.  I opened up the change set but there is no name or anything making it specific enough for me to look it up.  Is there a query i can run to see all change sets?

Ideally, you would be associating your task when you initially added/modified your document in the web UI. You cannot associate a work item to a change set after the fact.

There are some ways you can get around this:

1. Add a precondition that forces changes to be associated with a work item (only helps for future situations)
2. Link to the change set URI instead of a work item
3. Create the link in a rich client like Eclipse

yes i found the precondition on the eclipse client.  But our client does not want to use eclipse to manage documents they want to use the web.  Which i am looking for the precondition for the web, i was able to apply it in eclipse but it is not working on the web side.  Any idea where i can find it?

Are you adding the client-side precondition or the server-side one? The server-side precondition will apply across all clients.

Thanks i did not realize there was a client and a server.  I did the client first then updated the server and it is working....

Awesome thanks so much for your help
