Power Automate Goes Beyond “Out of the Box” Azure DevOps Automation Workflow

“Out of the box” are Process Workflow features to build automation rules within Microsoft Azure DevOps (ADO). One caveat found thus far. If criteria are met for an update to an ADO work item, the user cannot update the Tags of a work item (e.g., append tags). Bizarre but true.

In this case, the user must leverage Power Automate to update the ADO work item to append Tags to the work item(s) that meet the criteria.

Thanks, Omer, for pointing out this shortfall so we could plug the hole with Microsoft Power Automate. Note: other fields can be updated when the rule is executed, just not the Tags field. Special logic is required to update this Tags field, i.e., Replace, Append, Remove

Again, Microsoft Power Automate to the Rescue.
