Editing & Renaming States in Agile Process template in Azure DevOps

Though we will be able to add states and delete states in Agile Process template..When it comes to editing states it’s altogether different

As of today, AzureDevOps allows you edit state categories (i.e You can move states from one category to another) but at the same time you won’t be able to edit the state names.

Suppose if you have created new state called “BugFixing” you will be never able to edit or rename the state but you will be able to edit the category

Workaround: To rename the state name, you need to delete the state and add a new state with different name.
