Link types not consistent in work items - RTC 5.0.2

Karthik Krishnan (8845119163) | asked Apr 30 '15, 4:06 a.m.
On a Formal PA, the work items on Web client (FireFox) shows the following

web client

In the Eclipse client I see the following

In VS the below,

I do not see "Successor" in the Eclipse client which was available till RTC 4.0.5. I see this behaviour from RTC 5.0.1 & RTC 5.0.2

Is this an intended behaviour?

I dont think that's intended behavior. it should be a defect. You can contact client support to get it addressed.

Hi Karthik,
It looks like this feature (ability to add Successor/Predecessor in Eclipse, under the Links tab, with the Add button) may be implemented in the future.

As a work around, you can add the link in Eclipse, by Clicking on WI drop down > Link to Work Item... > Successor
There does still seem to be a bit of an issue here - I had to close and open the WI tab again in Eclipse to see the change, but at least I can do it in Eclipse.
