I'm wondering if there is some API/Code/Trick on Sitecore to fetch all linked/related Items to a given Sitecore item, just like we have on the XP Admin interface?

My goal here is to find all pages using a given item as a data source of one of its renderings.

    Something like Sitecore.Globals.LinkDatabase.GetReferrers({current item}) or I missed the point of your question?

You can use from code: ItemLink[] itemLinks = Globals.LinkDatabase.GetReferrers(item);

Or from Content Editor you can use Link ribbon button from Navigate tab:

enter image description here


You can use Link Database via GetReferrers method. e.g.

var links = Globals.LinkDatabase.GetReferrers(item);
  if (links == null)
    return new Item[0];
  var linkedItems = links.Select(i => i.GetSourceItem()).Where(i => i != null);
