Syncing Data with Azure DevOps

One-Way vs. Two-Way Azure DevOps Synchronization

One-Way Azure DevOps Synchronization

The One-Way Azure DevOps Sync provides a quick and easy way to import your work items from Azure DevOps into your roadmap. By setting up a Sync schedule, Roadmunk makes sure that your roadmap is always up to date with the most current Azure DevOps information. 

Two-Way Azure DevOps Synchronization

The Two-Way Sync seamlessly ensures that any changes you make in Azure DevOps will be reflected in your roadmap - and vice versa. Updating Azure DevOps fields (eg. Priority, State, Iteration Path, Area Path etc) or Start & End dates is as simple as dragging and dropping items in Roadmunk

Manual Sync with Azure DevOps

Even if you've set up automatic synchronization with Azure DevOps, there are times when you need to take control. This section will walk you through how to push and synchronize to Azure DevOps manually. 

To push newly created items to Azure DevOps, follow these steps: 

  1. Open the item card of the item that you wish to create a new issue for in Azure DevOps.

  2. Ensure an Work Item Type has been selected 

  3. Click the Azure DevOps button

  4. Select Push to Azure DevOps. Within a few moments, the item card will update with an Azure DevOps ID

  5. Click on the Azure DevOps ID to open your new Azure DevOps issue


If you enable automatic synchronization, this will not push newly added items from Roadmunk to Azure DevOps. In order to push these newly added items from Roadmunk to Azure DevOps, you will have to follow the above steps.

To manually synchronize your roadmap with Azure DevOps, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Integrate button

  2. From the dropdown menu, click Synchronize Now


To manually synchronize a single item with Azure DevOps, follow these steps:

  1. Open the item card of the item that you wish to sync with Azure DevOps

  2. Click the Azure DevOps button

  3. From the drop down menu, select Synchronize Now


To manually sync+push multiple items with Azure DevOps, follow these steps

  1. From your All Data table, select each item you'd like to sync or push to Azure DevOps

  2. Select the Sync+Push button to start

  3. All existing items will be synced and new items will receive a new External ID to show they've been synced
