Hi horkanea,

Are you asking how to create the association between two project areas?
If you are using CLM 3.0.1, you could use LPA (Lifecycle Project Administration) to setup project linking easily.

Hey Kevin :)
Can you please provide any further information about linking two or more project areas?
Are there any detailed informations, screenshots, videos available,
how that gonna work?

For example, we want to create a "base project" providing the source code of the project and a range of workitems.
Deriving from this base project, we would like to have some other projects for our different product lines, e.g. "project mini" with lesser features, "project extended" with more features, etc...
each of them has their own timelines and releaseplanings, workitems and sourcecode files/stream,
but also can use and modify workitems and streams from the base project.

How could this be realized?

- using dependencies and providing artifacts (as it can be managed in the project overview)
or better
- using a overall containing lifecycle project?

Where can i find more information about this?

Hi Eamon --

If you have multiple RTC project areas that use the same Jazz Team Server, you can link artifacts between those project areas.  For example, you can link work items to each other, and you can associate SCM change sets from a stream in one project area with a work item in another project area.  

For project areas on different Jazz Team Servers, you must first establish cross-server communication between the servers.  Then you must create associations between the project areas. See these help topics for details:


A lifecycle project groups multiple project areas so that you can manage project area membership and role assignments from one central location.  See Administering lifecycle projects and Getting started with project areas and lifecycle projects for details.  

RTC also has a feature that lets you share the process of a project area with other project areas.  The purpose of this feature is that it lets you have a master project area for your organization where you control process.  Other project areas can then consume many, but not all, process elements from that master project area.  See Sharing the process of a project area for details.
