I have a scenario wherein Im trying to setup a Flow between Outlook and Azure DevOps wherein the Azure DevOps Work Item will get Updated based on a response to an email, having certain criteria in it. One of the big ASKS here is to Update the Work Item with the LATEST details/response in the body of the email. The issue I have here is that Flow/Automate does not currently recognize the Discussion field an AzDo Work Item and thus Im unable to map it. The only option I have is to Update the Description every-time (Essentially Override) which makes everything very convoluted
Does anyone have a work around for this?
We had a similar need and was able to do this by using the "Send an HTTP request to Azure DevOps" action.
You would set the Relative URI to something like "https://dev.azure.com/[your organization]/[Project]/_apis/wit/workItems/[work item]/comments?api-version=5.1-preview.3"
and in the Body field a simple Json
"text": "Moving to the right area path"
This will post a new comment to your work item.
The name of the discussion field is actually 'History' and updating that works fine.
May I ask how to write the Header for authorization?
I used Authorization: Bearer <personal access code generated from Azure DevOps> but it doesn't work.
