Email the URL of a newly created work item in DevOps

I have a simple flow where if a Form is submitted then it will create a work item within Azure DevOps.


Once the work item is created then I will be notified that there is a new work item via Teams and Outlook. Within that notification the URL of the created work item is added. Though, when I click on the provided hyperlink in the email or Teams all I get is a webpage with the HTML code, not the link to the work item itself. 


How do I get the hyperlink to navigate to the correct work item within DevOps?

Hi @comorris,


As far as I am aware that URL contains the REST API Url value of the work item and not the interface hyperlink:


An interface hyperlink would be something like this:


A workaround might be to use an expression for the URL value:

replace(outputs('Create_a_work_item_2')?['body/url'], 'apis/wit/workItems/', 'workItems/edit/')
