Azure Boards Kanban Tools
This provides a set of tools to enhance Kanban board usage within Azure DevOps and Azure DevOps Server.
Copy Kanban settings
With Azure DevOps, we see more and more teams switching to a single team project approach with teams being split based on a combination of iterations and areas. This can result in dozens of teams set up within the system. Once a team goes in and configures their Kanban board with their settings: card rules, swimlanes, column definitions, etc. they may want to share that setup with other teams. This extension allows teams to either grab settings from another team and apply them to their boards or to allow a team to copy their settings to another team.
In this release, the following configurations will be copied for each backlog level within the process template:
When you select a team to copy settings to / from, we will need to move work items in the current Kanban board to new columns. With this extension, before you do the copy, you will have the ability to optionally configure how that mapping would be applied. Otherwise we will move work items to the first column that matches the work item's current state. To do so, click on the Customize column mappings button on the dialog.
In this current version of the extension there are a few known limitiations and issues.
