Forwarding GitHub Issue to Azure DevOps


currently i'm trying to build a Flow which forwards a GitHub Issue from a special GitHub Repository to the development Repository on Azure DevOps.

It exists a "Create work item" task, but the trigger "If a new problem is opened or assigned" doesn't contains a Source Repository, where the Flow should see.

Exists another option to build my Flow?

Re: Forwarding GitHub Issue to Azure DevOps

Hi @saigkill,


I did a quick test on my side, and the trigger you mentioned is really unable to specify a repository.

Perhaps you could consider configuring Condition to determine whether the Repository_Url is the specified url of the source repository, and then configure following action.

In addition, If you want the trigger you mentioned to be able to specify Source Repository, please consider submitting an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Re: Forwarding GitHub Issue to Azure DevOps

Hi @v-bacao-msft,

i added the idea to your mentioned feature request tracker.

For now i could try to use your idea with adding a condition. How can i do this? The settings only provide a option to set a TrackingID, Repeating Rule and Paralellism.

Hi @saigkill.

Add a new Condition step right after the GitHub step.

Select the GitHub Repository Url, "is equal to" or "contains" as condition and the URL of the relevant repository matching value. In advanced mode it should look similar to "@contains(triggerBody()?['repository_url'], 'YOUR REPO URL')".

You can ignore the "If no" branch and add the step to create the work item in Azure DevOps in the the "If yes" branch.

It should work.

Cheers Giorgio.
