What’s new in Azure DevOps Sprint 154

What’s new in Azure DevOps Sprint 154

Anisha

Sprint 154 has just finished rolling out to all organisations and you can check out all the cool features in the release notes. Here are just some of the features that you can start using today.

Add a GitHub release as an artifact source

You can link your GitHub releases as artifact source in Azure DevOps release pipelines. This will let you consume the GitHub release as part of your deployments.

Create and embed work items from a wiki page

We heard from feedback, that wiki is used to capture brainstorming documents, planning documents, ideas on features, spec documents, meeting minutes etc. Now you can easily create features and user stories directly from a planning document without leaving the wiki page, quickly and easily, saving you time and reducing context switching.

Instant search for work items

Ever lose the link to a work item you recently opened and not know where to go to find it? Never fear – the search bar now provides a list of recently accessed work items and full support for search syntax so you can find any work item right inline.

Tip: You can invoke the search box by typing the keyboard shortcut “/”.

Live updates for work items

We’ve made it even easier to stay up to date on the latest changes with the introduction of live updates. Now, just like on the Kanban board, if you have a work item open and someone on your team makes a change, you will get those updates immediately without needing to refresh.

View parent work item as a column

Another longstanding paper cut in the product is the inability to view parent information as you reorder the backlog, so we’re excited to introduce parent work item as a configurable column. You can now change the order of your PBIs with the Feature information in view!

These are just the tip of the iceberg, and there are plenty more features that we’ve released in Sprint 154. Check out the full list of features for this sprint in the release notes.
