SharePoint List to ADO Work Item

Hi Everyone,

 

We have a SharePoint (SP) list where users create/modify items and ALWAYS attach a file within the list. Below is what I'm trying to achieve:

 

  • When a SP List Item is Created or Modified, Create or Modify a Work Item (Task) on Azure DevOps (ADO)

AND 

  • Attach the List Item Attachment File to that same Work Item (Task) on ADO ... OR.... Save the Attachment File in the ADO Repository and Link it with the related Work Item (Task)

 

Please help! Thank you in advance.

Hi @mbhammad,

 

You could refer to the following steps to create the work item of DevOps according to the created or modified items in the SharePoint, then add the attachments into it.

 

This is the whole steps:

- Upload Attachment

    "properties": {
        "id": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "url": {

Hi @mbhammad,

 

Yes, you can use the Get Work item details action instead of Create a new item action, then put the Dynamic content of Get work item details into these previous steps.Annotation 2019-09-09 094004.png

Thank You @v-litu-msft .. It works great for new items.. But when an item is modified on SP, it creates a "New" work item on Azure DevOps (ADO).. Can it update the same/existing work item and attachment on ADO?

 

Many thanks for your help.
