1-Click Child-Links is an Azure DevOps extension for creating multiple work items as children via single click, where each work item is based on a single pre-defined template.
Azure DevOps offers team-specific work item templating as core functionality with which you can quickly apply pre-populated values for your team's commonly used fields per work item type.
For example, if you're using a process inherited from the agile template with a custom requirement-level type called defect and 3 task templates defined, using 1-click on a user story or defect will generate three child tasks, one for each defined template.
It's also possible to limit which parent work items apply to each template in one of two ways:
Simplified: put the list of applicable parent work item types in the child template's description field, like this:
Complex: put a minified (single line) JSON string into the child template's description field, like this:
Define team templates
Create / open a work item
Find 1-Click Child-Links on toolbar menu
You should now have children associated with the open work item.
This extension is an enhanced version of 1-Click Tasks
