Unable to get dynamic values for DevOps work item

Hello, 

 

When iterating through a VSTS query, I would like to set some conditions that match the Title of the work item. I imported a work item from a coworker and the flow already has a condition that searches against Title. However, I am unable to see such an option when I browse the dynamic content section. I am able to copy and paste the dynamic content though. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @michawa ,

 

You could execute Flow once and then observe the name of the property contained in Body inside corresponding action.

Also observe peek code is now a better choice, as below:

Re: Unable to get dynamic values for DevOps work item

Hi @michawa , 

 

You can get the fields in the dynamic content tab when you choose the action "Get Work Item Details" and not the "List Work Item" action  (or any other way that outputs a List of Work items in the form of an array. A workaround for that is to create an action to "Get work Item Details" in the apply to each control and get the details. Please refre to the screenshot below:azdeee.png

Hope this Helps!

Re: Unable to get dynamic values for DevOps work item

The list of work items I am getting is from the "Get Query Results" action, but I assume that your workaround should still work. However, what are you inputting for Work Item Id? I see that you are using a custom expression there to retrieve the id from the value.

Used this expression 

items('Apply_to_each')['System.Id']

Thanks.

Ok thanks! Is there a way I can browse the list of properties that I can accesss for a given item? (If I want to get Title but don't know that it is called System.Title)
