Having your Azure DevOps project connected to your journey map helps monitor the progress of stage-related work items and always know whether you need to create new items.

Note: You must be on a Pro/Enterprise plan to be able to connect your Azure DevOps account to UXPressia.

To be able to add Azure DevOps work items, make sure to connect UXPressia to your Azure DevOps account first.

How to connect Azure DevOps to UXPressia

Open your map, press “Add section” and find Azure DevOps in the Media/Files section category:

Add section

After you add the section, log into your Azure DevOps account, and select the organization and project:

Now you can start adding work items from your Azure DevOps account to the map.

Note: Once you set up the integration, all workspace contributors will also be able to use this integration.

To add work items to your map, click on ADD WORK ITEM and select them from the list:

ADD WORK ITEM

Items you select will appear on the map:

UXPressia displays the following work item data:

  • Item type (Epic, Issue, Task), which is displayed as an icon;

Item types
  • Item key in Azure DevOps;

  • Item summary;

  • Assignee;

  • Item state,(To Do, Doing, Done or custom);

  • Area.

If any of the details above get updated in an item, the item will be automatically updated in UXPressia when you open it next time.

You can also pull the latest updates manually. And you can always see when the last synchronization happened:
