User Interface

  

Description

This Extension converts links from module to base artifact link. It works on selected artifacts. Selection is by user using checkboxes or "Picker UI"

Problem to solve

You have created some or all links on the module level, but your company policy is to make base links only. The example use case for "base link only" is where you're reusing artifacts incl. links across several modules. Using standard IBM DNG  the links would not be visible in other modules.
