Do we need to tie an RTC PA with an RRC PA (& RQM PA) via an ALP for the 2 ways links towards traceability?

 Had always thought we need to have an All Lifecycle Project with RTC, RRC, RQM PA's components to create 2-way links between any two of the last 3 towards a traceability model (left illustration). 

The successful use of links illustrated on the right found here is a big surprise: The majority of the links are between the RTC PA component, OriSin(CM), of ALP Adam; and the RRC PA component, Eva(rm), of the ALP Eva and they are working without any apparent issue.

What extra does the ALP bring to a properly implemented traceability model?

TRaceability as thought vs current implementation

Please note, that there are different types of links ans some require to be configured and others don't. See and for a bit more information. In a Lifecycle Project the provider relationship for links is created.

 Thx Ralph,

Both yours and Don's answers help us understand the subject better, have to choose only 1 right, choose yours as it answered a lot of our puzzles around this subject and didn't know where to look for infos.

Still have one question though, probably due to lack of experience: Using associations in webUI, would we be able to have CLM links to&from more than one CCM (or RM, or QM) project areas?

And are there manual ways to do so with a Lifecycle Project in Eclipse client, which only allows the setup of each ALP with one PA per each application (CCM, RM, or QM)

A lifecycle project does not have any magic, it simply brings convenience. See the discussion in the below post.

Maybe I misunderstood your issue, particularly regarding "all lifecycle project" and "2-way links". If true, can you please elaborate?
