Visualize flat and one-hop query results on a board
[DEPRECATED] Query based boards extensions for Visual Studio Team Services
This extension allows you to visualize the result of work item queries on a board.
NOTE: There is a completely new version available of 'Query Based Boards' that you can find here. For older TFS versions this extension will remain available on the markerplace, but it will no longer be maintained.
After installing the extension, navigte to the Work hub, and select Queries. When opening a query, a new tab called Board is available to visualize the results on a boad.
The board can be visualzed for flat list and one-hop queries and supports the following capabilities for now:
The order by clauses of the query are respected on the board
Click on the work item title to open the work item form and edit the fields. On save, the board will reflect the changes made.
Drag & Drop work items from one state to another. This will update the state of the work item (the default reason for that transition is used).
Custom states are supported and will be visualized on the board as a column as well.
Works also for queries across project to visualize work items from different team projects on a single board.
Boards are not supported for tree based queries (hierarchy with multiple levels).
Only items that can appear on the backlog (like epics, features, user stories, tasks, bugs) are supported. Work items of type test cases, feedback request & response are filtered out for now.
When there is an error during the update of the work item, it is reverted without a proper error message.
