Visual Studio Team ServicesCreate Work Item

Why insert friction in your development processes by having bug reports be added manually to your backlog, when you could automate the whole thing? Just flip the switch on this Zap and every time you create a new JIRA issue a work item will also be added on Visual Studio Online, letting everyone know to start working on things the moment they are added to the system.

How It Works

  1. An issue is created on JIRA
  2. Zapier automatically creates a Visual Studio Online work item
