'When a Work Item is Updated' Only Works for DevOps State Change

I have built a flow based off a template that updates a SharePoint list when it's Azure DevOps counterpart (linked through work item ID) gets "updated". However, I'm finding this update only to be true when the work item changes states. Is there a way to change this so if any field is changed in the work item that it updates the connected SharePoint List? 


i.e. I have a field in my User Story called "Test Status" and it currently equals "Mitigated". The SharePoint list also has a "Test Status" of "mitigated". If I update the field "Test Status" in DevOps to now equal "Not-mitigated" I would like that to trigger the flow to then update the SharePoint list with the same status.


In summary how can I change the DevOps trigger to ANY UPDATE rather than just state change updates?

Hi Henry,

I'm not convinced this is the case. I'm seeing updates in my flow runs where the comment count has one up for example.

Anyone know how to get this to only send a message for particular States? There appears to be a "Trigger Conditions" criteria in the DevOps connection but I cannot find any documentation on the required syntax for those conditions.
