I have work items I am moving from on project to another via export/import.  I was able to successfully import everything into the new project except the implements requirement links.   I exported the implements requirement link (RRC items) from the first project, which I matched up with the Ids from the second project.  But when I import them, the links don't show up.  I'm using CSV files.  I know the field name is correct for Implements Requirement, because it was generated by the export.   Any ideas?

This is a restriction of the CSV import.  Per the InfoCenter topic on CSV Import:

  • You cannot use a CSV file to import links to and from other artifacts.
  • You can import only text-based artifacts from a CSV file. You cannot import graphical artifacts, such as sketches, storyboards, and diagrams.
There is an existing enhancement for this feature to be considered in a future release:

Provide the ability to import artifact links through the CSV import wizard (68543)
