Multiple Links created on Application Side.


Chaithra Komath (11) | asked Mar 15, 1:37 a.m.

I have a requirement where I want to create Links from Change Request to Application on creation of CR.So I have created afollow up action server side plugin and I have used linkService approach to create the links.
                                IReferenceFactory refFactory = IReferenceFactory.INSTANCE;
                                IReference source = refFactory
                                        .createReferenceToItem(cRworkingCopy);
                                IReference target = refFactory
                                        .createReferenceToItem(appWI
                                                .getWorkingCopy());
                                // get the link service to have access to the
                                // ILinkServiceLibrary
                                ILinkService linkService = getService(ILinkService.class);
                                // get the ILinkServiceLibary
                                ILinkServiceLibrary linkServiceLibrary = (ILinkServiceLibrary) linkService
                                        .getServiceLibrary(ILinkServiceLibrary.class);
                                // Create the link
                                ILink link = linkServiceLibrary
                                        .createLink(
                                                WorkItemLinkTypes.CONTRIBUTES_TO_WORK_ITEM,
                                                source, "ContributesTo", target);

                                // Save the link

                                linkServiceLibrary.saveLink(link);
But on multiple saves, multiple links are created at the application side. But no issues in Change Request.
Change Request ------------------------------> Application
                                "ContributesTo"


Application-----------------------------> ChangeRequest
                          "Tracks"

 I am unsure what the question is. In any case the code shown is partial at best. You can try to search for "link" on https://rsjazz.wordpress.com . I have explained how to use the link APIs on clients and servers.

The keyword is Backlinks.
