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.

Hi @scheu 

 

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!

Hi there,

 

to answer the question, this is how I implemented the propsed solution. For me it works fine. Apologies for blocking out the rest of the link. Just use your own base-url from ADO and replace the ID at the end with the Dynamic Field "ID". Also sorry for German interface, but it should work the same.
