Collaboration links are not created at application level but at project level instead, this means registering a friend application is not enough to start creating outgoing collaboration links, you still need map a Jira project to one or more Remote OSLC Application projects with a given association type.
The association type defines how two projects are meant to collaborate and therefore, which types of links can be created between their artifacts. This plugin defines the following associations and corresponding link types for collaboration links creation:
|Association Type||Outgoing Link Type||(Remote) Incoming Link Type|
|Provides - Related Change Requests||Related Change Request||Related Change Request|
|Provides - Implementation Requests||Implements Requirement||Implemented By Requirement|
|Affects Requirement||Affected By Requirement|
|Provides - Requirements Change Requests||Tracks Requirement||Tracked By Requirement|
|Provides - Change Requests||Elaborated By Architecture Element||Elaborates|
