How can I copy link information when duplicating work items ?

Fred Bickford (281131) | asked Sep 02 '15, 11:49 p.m.
Is there a way to control the options available when a user selects work item copy ? one think that doesnt seem exposed is the link information.

For example I have a workitem type of defect, and it has many child links to various tasks to complete that defects work. I would like the ability to duplicate that defect and preserve the children linked...  links or parentl/child do not appear as a selection criteria for "Duplicate work item" even if link is added directly as a non attribute presentation.

As far as I am aware, there is no option like that. You would have to do it manually.
It would also not work in general e.g. if you had child work items and did a copy of that links, the safe would fail as it would introduce multiple parents.
