Creating Flow for ADO - When a Work Item is updated - Type Product Backlog Item is missing

Hello community, 


I wanted to create a Flow for automatically generating a Taks if one field in a Product Backlog Item has a certain value.
But I fail at selecting the Type "Product Backlog Item".  The Process Template behind my project definitely includes Product Backlog Items. 
Why is it missing in the list or should I just select "Enter custom value" and type in "Product Backlog Item".

I actually did the latter, but the flow didn't run then.


Any advise?

Hi @Tustle ,


I did the test on my side, the custom Work item type needs to be entered manually, it will not appear in the dropdown list.

Also, note the choice of Project Name, you need to check if the work item type you defined is in the specified Project.

Below is my test result, enter custom value is workable.
