We provide 2 convenient ways to create the Azure DevOps Search Work Items macro:

  1. Copy and Paste a link to Azure DevOps entities to the Confluence page directly.

  1. Enter the Azure DevOps base URL.

  2. Indicate the search criteria to target specific work items based on your needs to help you narrow down the search to retrieve only the relevant work items:

    1. the Azure DevOps organization;

    2. the Azure DevOps project;

    3. search text (word or phrase);

    4. items count;

    5. amount of rows to display in a table;

    6. hide/show header;

    7. the list of fields to display (in the Fields section’s drop-down are rendered fields based on the organization indicated in work item Url).

  3. The preview option allows you to verify and validate the macro view before actually inserting the macro into your Confluence page.
