Is it possible to include a link to another work item in the Summary?

Carlos Isacovich (59113) | asked Aug 03 '20, 10:22 a.m.

I want to include a reference to the parent work item in their children Summary attribute. I tried to do it in this way:

 Summary: @137258 - Summary text

The system recognize the token @137258 as a reference, and referencing another element in this way (like @userid) works OK.

But trying the work item reference I get the following:
            Over mouse: There is no other information available

            Clickig reference: Error 404: SRVE0295E

Am I doing something wrong or it is not possible including such reference?

"@xxx" is a reference to a user named "xxx".   To get a reference to a work item with ID "xxx", you can use "work item xxx".

If you have a work item type named "task", then you can also create a work item reference with the string "task xxx".
