Add a relationship from Single Item View

Creating a relationship establishes a directional link between two items. The related items may exist in the same set or project, or in completely different projects.

  1. Select View > Open relate in the toolbar, or


    select the Relationships button in the side toolbar, then Relate items in the bottom panel.

  2. This opens the side panel where you can select the items that you want to relate. Recently viewed items is the default view, but you can also choose the Explorer Tree, Releases or Search tab to find the items you want to relate. Double-click on the item, or select the item you want to relate and select Relate.


    If you do not have rights to a linked related item, you can still see the related item’s name, project, and relationship attributes. However, you cannot preview, open, or edit the item if you do not have permission.


    If relationship rules have been applied to the project, only items that meet the rule's criteria will appear in the right panel. You can only create a relationship with item types that meet the applied relationship rules. Select Show relationship diagram at the top of the right panel to display the rules that have been associated to this project.

  3. A relationship will be added to the selected item in the direction defined by the rules and will immediately be visible in the bottom panel. If the new relationship is not defined in the rules, you will be prompted to define the relationship direction and type.  



    If you have multiple relationships to define between the same item types, you can check the Don't ask again checkbox. During your session, all relationships between these item types will automatically be set up in the same way.
