How to get the URL of a Azure DevOps work item created in Flows

Hi,

 

I use 'Azure DevOps' to create a work item in Flows.  

How can I get URL of the work item which gets created?

When I try the 'URL' dynamic content, I only get a url to the json data for the task created, not the URL of the HTML page of the task.

I also use 'URL' of the 'Work item' i created in Azure DevOps.

And this is the output that I got

 

https://office.visualstudio.com/_apis/wit/workItems/3451399

 

When I load the above link in browser, i got JSON date, instead of the HTML page for the work item I created.

That is weird! I got the appropriate url that navigates me to the work item. Can you please post a screenshot of your flow so that we can see the configuration and better assist you?

Hey @scheu 

 

I got the issue here. My apologies that I did not have a look at it earlier. So I browsed the URL and to my surprise it returened huge JSON of everything on that particular work item that i did not want. 

 

So what I did is, I went to the work item in the Azure DevOps and copied that URL 

https://dev.azure.com/user10962/user1/_workitems/edit/6/

In my case it was this and here user10962 is the account name and the user1 is the project name. I used this url and got rid of the id '6' in this case and intialised a variable of type string after the create item and  then put that entire string upto edit/ and after the slash i chose the ID from the dynamic selector to get the ID. This would return the URL to go to the work item HTML page. 

 

Hope this Helps!
