Creating a Work Item in Azure Boards

In Azure Boards, we can create different workitems by using different options. The workitems differs from project to project based on the process template we are using. if we are using Agile process template then we would have the ability to create Epics, Features and UserStories,Tasks whereas if we are using Scrum template then we can create Epics, Features, Backlogs, Tasks, Bugs etc. and in CMMi template it’s altogether different. For Customized templates it will be completely different.

Now let us see how to create any workitem in Azure DevOps. As I said earlier there are different ways to create workitems and they are

  • By using Azure DevOps Portal
  • Azure DevOps REST API
  • Azure DevOps CLI

Let us see about how to create a workitem using Azure DevOps portal in this article. Before following the steps make sure you have the requried access to the project in which you are going to create the workitem and then follow the below steps

Step 1: Go to the Azure DevOps Project

Step 2: Click on the “+” icon at the top left of the Project as shown below.

Once you click on it, you will get list of options such as Epic, Feature, Task, UserStory etc., Click on any of those and create a new workitem.

There is also another way by which you can directly go to Epic, Feature or any workitem creation. For that all you have to do is type the below url –

https://dev.azure.com/orgname/projectname/_workitems/create/epic

In the above url, you have to replace the org and project names with your own Azure DevOps organization and the project. At the end of the url, you can add different workitems to have different urls for creation of Epic, Feature and UserStory
