Can we import work items using csv in ccm creating links from web browser? If yes, how should it be done?

I was trying to import work items using csv from web browser, it is not creating parent links which is specified in the csv file. On the other hand if I use the same csv and import it from eclipse, the links are created.

 Hello Akshay, in order for parent links to work, the items have to have the "Id" column, and the links column must use the id from there.

Hi Luis, thank for the response, I followed the same steps, I am able to resolve links from eclipse client but links are not being created from web client. The question was does web client support this functionality?

Yes, there is an option that hints that this is possible, on the option to "Update" work items, the second child option says "Replace existing links with new imported values" which means that linked IDs will retain their relationship.

If this is not working, then this would be a defect that needs investigation by Support.
