A Linked Data Block Relationship is similar to a Rule Block Relationship, but only applies the relationship between a Rule Block and an associated Linked Data Block. The relationship always involves linked Group By fields, as with a Rule Block Relationship. Depending on the types of blocks involved, it may also be possible to specify whether a result record is required or optional on each side of the relationship. Linked Data Block Relationships do not involve time, so unlike a Rule Block Relationship, there are no time parameters.
