Canarys Date validator
The Canarys Date Validator is an Azure DevOps Extension designed to validate dates. It ensures that the start date is not set after the finish date, preventing users from saving corrupted work items.
How it Works
Within Azure DevOps, when users set or update any system date field, such as the start date and finish date, this extension evaluates the dates. It checks that the start date is not later than the finish date, and based on this evaluation, it either allows or restricts the user from saving the work item.
If the start date is found to be later than the finish date, the extension takes action by disabling the save button and displaying an error message to notify the user. As shown in the figure start date is after finish date so save button is disabled and error message is displayed stating “Finish Date is before Start Date”.
On the other hand, if the start date is on or before the same date as the finish date, the extension clears any existing errors and enables the save button.
The tool actively functions when work items are loaded, reset, updated, refreshed, or saved.
