Create Azure Rule to automate process between parent and child work items

Occasional Visitor
I could not find any documentation on how to automate the process between parent and child work item using rules. Here are my issues:
*Added a new flag to the task work item in order to be flip by the automation process with state T/F
*The automated process would watch for Bug to flip into the status Ready, and also the child task would the flag flipped into T.

At present, there aren't any parent/child work-item process rules. There is a community suggestion for this and it's apparently listed in the Azure DevOps roadmap 2023 Q2.

Hello @kadedev ,


I would take a look at Power Automate (office365) or Logic Apps (Azure), for work item flow automation. I created really interesting scenarios in the past with customers using those tools. 


kind regards,
