Is it possible to gather a list of artifacts that are inserted but not linked

Melanie Dixon (9112) | asked Aug 11 '23, 12:54 p.m.

 We have circumstance where:

Artifact is inserted into another
No trace link was created

Need to find these and what artifact it is inserted in to update and add the trace link.

I can't make any sense out of this question.

Unfortunately embedded artefacts do not show entries where they are used under the "Used In" section of their details, and so there's no good way to locate them.

I've always thought this is a bit unfortunate, because unless you specifically create a link when you embed them then you're stuck.

The only way I can think of doing it is using the Reportable REST API, or ELO Publisher - retrieve the primary text and look for embedded content
