Is it possible to add custom Link Types under Links ?

Jagan N (133) | asked Jun 27 '17, 8:07 a.m.

Currently, when we add a LINK attribute to any of the custom work item, we see some predefined Link Types such as,

'Add depends on'
'Add Resolves'
'Add affected by Defect'

When we select 'Add affected by defect' we will directly get list filtered type 'Defects'.

Similarly, We would like to add our own Link Type , say 'Add affected by Job', 'Add affected by Release'  - where 'Job' and 'Release' are our custom work item types - those when selected expected to provide the selection dialog directly filtered by their respective types. Also we would allow to add links to only specific work item type as per requirement.

My understanding is this could to be done via plugin extensions (?)

Please advice. Do we have any example of this type of implementation?

Thanks in advance!

 This is what I know:

If you want to limit creation of certain link typed links between certain work item types, you would have to create pre conditions/advisors and prevent the save, I think.
