Azure DevOps (formerly Visual Studio Team Services)

Announcement: Towards the end of this month, we will move ideas to the Azure DevOps Developer Community where users already report and track their issues. The move is aimed at providing a single platform for all your feedback and improve your engagement with our product team. After the move, this UserVoice site will become read-only and new suggestions can be added on Developer Community.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Azure DevOps and Team Foundation Server (TFS), so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The VSTS Team

  1. In new navigation clicking on 'Repos' should list repos

    In the new navigation I think clicking on 'Repos' should list repos. The only way to switch repos is a dropdown in the breadcrumb above.

    • Make Release definition accept Build artifacts with Default version from specific BUILD TAG

      The current Build artifact (at release definition) only allow to choose "Latest from specific branch with tags", i want choose "Latest with specific tag".
      This allow me to at some previous release, when published in some environment i can TAG the BUILD (using a task for that) and this can be the default for the next release. In cases where only 1 build artifact was changed and i want the latest build that goes to production (for example).

      • Query Editor: Make it posible to filter assigned to = "people in distribution List

        Query Editor: Make it posible to filter assigned to = "people in distribution List"
        Meaning I have a lot of churn in my employees and having queries where I can see which Items that are assigned to my team members are almost impossible to maintain. If I could add a line in my queries where:
        Field "assigned To" Operator "contains members" from Value "mailgroup alias"

        • Hide my created PRs in the PRs assigned to me view

          Most of my PRs are in an area that a policy auto assigns back to me. This results in most of my PRs being duplicated between the PRs I create and the PRs assigned to me. It would be much more helpful if the PRs assigned to me view did not list the ones I created.

            • keep environment in pipeline when using manual trigger

              We have multiple environments in our release pipeline that are set up in the following order:

              Dev => QC => Staging => Production

              Our release definition is setup using triggers, so anytime a build artifact changes, we deploy a new version of the application to our dev server. We have planned weekly deployments to the QC environment so the QA team can test each build. All our environments are setup with triggers, pre-deployment approvals, and post-deployment approvals. When a build is ready to go to the dev server someone on our DevOps team approves the post-deployment approval and then the…

                Hi, we may just not know how to use this properly, but when we update a ticket it does not send email to the originator of the ticket. How can you set this to send email to the ticket originator, and ticket owners, and if anyone wants to follow the ticket, whenever an activity occurs?

                • Analytics view that filters based on calculated date

                  When creating a new Analytics view, under 'work item type' you have the option to filter based on field criteria. Currently I can filter based on <'iteration end date'> <greater than> <date>.
                  It would be great if the date field could be calculated, such as today minus 30 days.

                  • History on the work items (PBI/Bug/task/Feature)

                    Can we add the history feature on the work items (PBI/Bug/Task/Feature). This history feature is there on TFS 2017, but not on the VSTS/Azure DevOps. This helps to track any changes to the few key fields like Description, Acceptance Criteria and Story Points

                      Hello, We`ve started using VSTS recently. For now the whole documentation has been stored in dokuwiki. We`d like to migrate it to VSTS. Would it be possible to consider creating of such a feature? Thx.

                        • Able to add global notification rule - missing global work item changed rule

                          I was very surprised to find that the most basic notification rule, that every org needs is not available globally.
                          There is not work item changed rule. The one everyone needs.
                          "When a work item assigned to me changes (or is assigned to me), notify me (unless I am the one who changed it)"
                          This should be available globally, and by default.

                          Currently, the platform forces each team and/or user to go and create such a rule. This makes onboarding of the product a bigger hassle than it needs to be for such an obvious default behavior.

                          • Obfuscate security credentials in TFS Code Search results

                            Obfuscate security credentials in TFS Code Search results.

                            Currently, any passwords or security tokens held in source code are displayed in clear text in Code Search results.

                            These should be obfuscated by default.

                            Of course, developers should never enter passwords or security information into source code in the first place.. However, we run a large on-prem installation of TFS with large and historic code repos, so this is currently a security issue blocker to us rolling out TFS Code Search globally.

                              • workitem type feedback

                                As part of end user testing/UAT testing/Through regular demos of the applications that we are building, most of the times users keep providing feedbacks and we are unable to track them as work items in VSTS as there is no specific work item type 'Feedback'.

                                While there are other ways of managing this through different work item types such as user stories/scenarios etc.. but we would loose the track of how many feedbacks are actually converted/implemented in an application/product and how many are not .

                                • Excel and Project should be updated to handle Wiki links

                                  With Update 2, we have the ability to link Work Items to Wiki pages, however, that functionality didn't make it into the Excel and Project integration. When I use the Links and Attachments dialog for a connected Project file or Excel sheet, "Wiki page" is not one of the options.

                                  Related, the web based LinksControl does not allow you to create a Wiki page link even though it does display them if created on the Links page.

                                    On the Project settings page for a Project, there are the following headings:

                                    "Project details"
                                    "Devops services"

                                    Correct those headings as follows:

                                    "Project Details"
                                    "DevOps Services"

                                    I'm sure there are probably more instances of these

                                      • Improve Navigation

                                        I'm forced to select a category, but where I'm suggesting is broader than this. It involves navigation within and across all VSTS features.

                                        Can we please, get a single navigation tree where ALL settings, features and options can be found and viewed. Including breadcrumbs? So I can make an internal map of where I am in the VSTS suite and remember how / where a certain feature is.

                                        • Project template/clone - to reuse Board config setups, dashboard views, teams and queries

                                          Within a project you can configure a lot of different settings. You might have a number of different Teams, each using their own Board view configured for them, e.g. different columns, card colours, rules and fields displayed on the cards.

                                          You may also have some custom queries and dashboard views to standardise reporting.

                                          Setting all of this up can takes hours, days or longer.

                                          Yet each time you create a new project, you have to go and re-invent the wheel and start over. There doesn't seem to be a way to reuse all of this effort.

                                          A solution would be…
