Approvals: Adding an Item Link to DevOps Work Item

I'm still pretty new to Flow, but I have an Approval flow setup on a trigger "When a work item is updated". Everything is working great, however I'm unable to determine how to add a link to the DevOps work item on Approvals or emails.

 

Using the "URL" Dynamic content redirects the user to a page with just string text, not the actual Azure DevOps work item. Can anyone help me out with this?

 

I would imagine that since the string contains all the data within the work item itself, there must be a way to accomplish this, though it may require an Expression, which I'm not as familiar with.

I was able to resolve this myself, by manually inputting the URL, and replacing the ID value that is usually within the URL with the Dynamic Content of ID, as follows:

Re: Approvals: Adding an Item Link to DevOps Work Item

Hi,

 

* 'Compose HTML' Action does not support Link even if attempted with link html tag <a href="url>WorkItemId</a>. 

* I tried with a work around of identifying fixed url for my azure devops project and replacing the work item id for every record: https://yourazuredevops_url/your_devopsprojectname/_workitems/edit/@{item()?['System.Id']} , it worked well.

 This generates standard url, again it is not a hyperlink on the item id.
