How do I display only OSLC-enabled ClearQuest record types when establishing OSLC links?

Question & Answer


When creating an OSLC link to an IBM Rational ClearQuest record, how can I limit the record types displayed to include only OSLC-enabled record types?


The record creation and record selection dialogs for the ClearQuest OSLC provider display all record types when processing OSLC link requests. This allows OSLC consumers to establish one-way links to ClearQuest records because the infrastructure to create a backlink in the ClearQuest record is not enabled.
