Power Automate (Azure DevOps)


I would like to create a flow, in which a receive an e-mail when specific work item has been updated. 

I do not seem to be able to specify it more specifically than to 'Area Path'.


So, for instance when a feature changes status from 'New' to 'Active' then I would like to receive an e-mail.


Ideally, I would actually prefer having an Excel cell change status from 'New' to 'Active' e.g.


I hope someone can help me 🙂

Hi @CN77,


You could use a servicehook and POST to a When a HTTP request is received trigger action url. Jon Russell has written a nice blog about this approach:


In your case the servicehook could look like the below:




Alternatively, you could also use the When a work item is updated action and check via a HTTP request what the latest updates are. The drawback of this approach is that the flow will trigger for every update. That is why I would prefer the servicehook one.


Below is the setup with a when a work item is updated approach


1. Uri for the Send an HTTP request action



2. Expression for the condition action which checks if the System.State field of a Feature work item is equal to In Progress in the last record of the Updates table.



Happy to help out! 🙂
