OSLC How to create a Workitem with a Link in one step?


Stefan Hufnagl (29411920) | asked Jan 10 '15, 12:21 p.m.
 Hi,

is it possible in one step to create a Workitem with OSLC and include a Link (tracksRequirement) to an Artefact?
The creation of the Workitem work but I'm not able to have a link to an Artefact.
BTW, I can't include my OSLC POST example

If it is not possible in one step...I tried also PUT after the WI creation with no luck.
Thx

Steve

 Hi,

the problem was:
* The available OSLC Examples are not "uptodate", i.e. some of the xmlns are now different
* You have to include all xmlns, even if you don't use them.

A new problem is now that the included Links from a new created Workitem to an Artefact are not bidirectional...only "oneway"
:-(

When you add a link to a work item in the Web GUI, the POST action is to call an "addLink" command with a parameter "additionalSaveParameters" as "com.ibm.team.workitem.common.internal.updateBacklinks". You can imagine that this is in fact a two-step operation. I believe when you call OSLC directly, you lose this feature and need to add the back link manually.
