Use of 'When a work item is upated' with Azure DevOps



I'm using the trigger 'When a work item is upated' in Azure DevOps to catch new items or updated items in my DevOps environment. My question is : is it possible to catch the status of the item before it is updated, so that I can compare the values before executing the next action ? If not, what would be the best approach to do this ?


Many thanks.

I'm not aware of a supported way of doing this.


From my experience of this action, the output will contain the new status (i.e. post "update of a work item) but not the old status (i.e. pre update)

Thanks for your answer. 

I guess I'll have to change my sequence of handling the status.

Have a good day !
