How to: Edit Related Work Item Links

If one of your work items is linked to a related work item, you might want to add a comment about how the two work items are related.


This procedure is based on the work item types for MSF for Agile Software Development that are included with Team Foundation. If your team project is using a different process, this procedure might not apply to your work items, and you might have to refer to the custom help for the process you are using. For more information, see Finding and Using Process Guidance.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Contributors group or have the View work items in this node, and Edit work items in this node permissions set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

  1. Open the existing work item.

  2. Click the Links tab at the bottom of the form, select the related item, and then click Edit.
