Linking Separate Repositories


Chris Collins (11) | asked Mar 17 '11, 1:18 p.m.
Four independent projects were set up in separate RTC repositories. The four products now need to create "depends on" and "blocked by" links between work items across the projects. Is there a way to do this across the repository boundaries?

Hi Chris,

it is possible to link work items between different projects on different Servers. I haven't tried blocking. In general you will have to set up a friends relationship connection between the servers.

I linked 2 RTC 2.0.0.2 projects in different repository's but can only add "Related To" links to work items (not "Blocked By" or "Depends On").

We will try it with 3.0 to see if there are more link types.

In 3.0, linking 2 RTC projects together from different repository's adds the following link types to work items:

* Affected by Defect
* Affects Plan Item
* Related Change Request

Is there any reference doc that explains the use of these types?

For the "Related Change Request", that allows you to associate a work item to a change set where the two are not in the same repository.
