 I'm just curious how the "Affects Plan Item" for a defect is determined?   Is it based on all of the defects that have ever been linked to that Test Case?

Are you referring to the "Affects Plan Item" when linking work items to plans in the web client?

What context do you want to know about "Affects Plan Item" for defects?

 Will, what I'm wondering is that when viewing  a defect the "Affects Plan Item" can list several other defects.    What causes those defects to be placed there?    This was not done manually and instead done by RQM in some way.

Little late to the show, but this question was related to mine so I might as well answer.

It seems "Affects Plan Item" link is created on a defect whenever a work item is in the Development Items section of a test case, and a defect is created as part of a test result of that test case.  Development Items can be linked in one of two ways - directly by adding the work item from the section in the test case in QM, or by creating a 'Tested By Test Case' link in RTC - this is different than creating a 'Related Test Case' link in RTC.
