Can different link types be used between DOORS Next and Workflow Manager?

Janet Cook (2319) | asked Apr 15, 1:55 a.m.

DOORS Next and Workflow Manager Ver 7.0.2

I have set up the association between a DOORS Next and Workflow Manager project and can successfully link using the  "Tracked By" link type.  I am successfully reporting across these links.

However now I want to  use the "Affected By" (or any other ) link between the two systems for some requirements so these do not show up in my reports as we need the tracked by for a specific purpose. 

However, when I try to link a DOORS Next Artifact to a workflow item, , I cannot see the type available from either end?   What am I missing?  IF I cannot use the "Affected By" is there any other I can use? If so how do I see the link available when I try to link them?

Only the OSLC link types can be used from EWM to DOORS Next: The link creation dialog will show the link types available. Tracks and Implements are the link types you can create EWM->DN

I am not seeing the implements link only the tracks one?

The links available between project areas depend on the associations between your EWM and DN project areas. You probably only have an association for Implementation Requests. I think the association Requirements Change Requests will mean you can create Tracks/Tracked By links.

The associations to PAs are visible at the bottom of the Overview in Manage this Project Area.
