Traceability Tab

What is the mean by numbers written in brackets with traced items in traceability tab?

Sometimes when we see a traceability tab, In the screenshot below at the end of the name, numbers are in parentheses.  we think about it that What are these numbers and what is the meaning of it?

So in this post, we are going to describe this number and its meaning.

The number refers to the revision on the work item history that the traceability was established on. This is to help understand if the item is outdated relative to the initial point of tracing.

For Example: if TC-3434 is traced to TC-6545 and

If the TC-3434 was on rev. 35 (taken from the history of the item)

then, that number will show up on the trace info.
