Why can I no longer create a related link through the API?

We have some automation between an external system (ICSW) and RTC which creates a work item through the REST API.  The java app creates a draft work item with many attributes prepopulated, including a related link to a supporting work item, that already exists.

In 4.0.7, this worked perfectly, but after we upgraded to 5.0.2, the link appears in the draft work item, but as soon as it's saved, the link vanishes.

This is how the link is added to the draft using JSON:


Has the format changed?  Should I be creating the link differently?
