the workitems added in workitems lists are not showing up in referenced workitem

Pravin Patil (104139133) | asked May 18 '15, 4:38 p.m.


I have a workitem-A to which I added a attribute of type "workitem list" . In this (workitem-A > workitem list) I added workitem-B.

I was expecting that workitem-B should show up workitem-A as referenced in its "Links" tab, but it doesn't show up.

Does it not work that way?

How to fix this? I am looking to cross reference workitems using the workitem list type attribute.

Please let me know.

The effect you are expecting is not the default behavior.

I think you can create this behavior using Operation Participants, if you want.

Yes, having a work item in an attribute of type work item or work item list does not create a link and the referenced work item does not have the information.

You can use reference presentations to get both:

Does it have to be an attribute? Bidirectional links work the same way out of the box. For example, in the JKE Banking sample project, if you set workitem-A as "parent" of workitem-B, then workitem-B will appear as "child" as workitem-A automatically. Or if you make workitem-A "resolves" workitem-B, then workitem-B will be automatically set as "resolved by" workitem-A. Bidirectional links appear in pairs when you add links in the "Links", apart from "parent/child" and "resolves/resolved by", there are also "duplicated by/duplicate of" and many more for integration with other products.
