ADO Connection won't connect

I have an app where I collect some text inputs and I want to then write to a specific ADO ticket. 

 

The text input collection is easy, but when I add ADO as a connector it would crash my app, but then randomly worked a couple days ago. 

 

Now that it connects, I can't select it as a data source. 

 

Is there any clear documentation as to how exactly I should connect to ADO? 

And how can I consistantly connect to ADO?

Hi @JakeAnderson ,

Do you want to select "Azure DevOps" connector as data source directly within a Gallery or a Data Table control in your app?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think you have some misunderstanding on the data source type in PowerApps. There are two data source types in PowerApps -- Table data source (e.g. SP List, Excel table, SQL Table, etc) and Action data source (Office 365 Users, Azure, Office Outlook, etc).

More details about data source types in PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections-list

 

Actually, the "Azure DevOps" connector is a Action data source in PowerApps, you could not use it as data source directly within Items property or DataSource property of a control. Instead, you need to call/execute the corresponding actions to retrieve data as below:1.JPG

AzureDevOps.ListWorkItems(...)
AzureDevOps.ListIterations(...)
AzureDevOps.ListWorkItemTypes(...)

...

...

More details about avaiable actions supported under Azure DevOps connector, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/visualstudioteamservices/#actions

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Hey @v-xida-msft 

 

The connector I am using is this one (attached image)

 

Essentially what I am doing is a tool for MSFT FTE's to reference ADO tickets, and update those tickets with the values of a series of text inputs I run them through.
