There is no exact definition about how two nodes can said to be related. It is up to the designer whether to link the nodes or not. As long as you want to represent that two nodes and related, the relationship is meaningful and you can add a link between them.

  1. Move the mouse cursor over the source node. Press on any of the resources: Link, To Link, From Link. To and From links are directed relationship, which shows an arrow to indicate the flow from source to target node.
