Can we restrict the linktypes on workitems ?

Hello team

I am working on ALM change managment component.

Usecase :

I have a "changerequest " workitem in project area A and " Story" workitem in project area "B"

These two workitems are linked via Contributes-tracks relationship .

But in normal use case ALM is allowing to do any kind of links between two workitems.

Can i Restrict the links to particular "linktype" on workitems ?

or is there any possibility where we can make the particular link types mandatory in workitems  ?

Any hints on this usecase?

Any suggestions would be a  great  help

There is nothing built in. You could write advisors/pre-conditions to do this to some extent. But due to 228421: Adding links of type "Tracks", "Contributes To" and "Related Change Request" does not trigger a work item save participant there are limits in which link types you can prevent.
