In Teams, you can use the Azure Boards application to link your Team environment to your Azure project. You can also do this within a chat between another person or group of people using the Azure Boards app inside the chat.

 

My team moved to a new project recently and I am unable to redirect the Azure Boards app to that new project inside a chat; the Azure Board app was successfully linked to the new project in all channels, but chats app will not save the new project setting.

 

Reproduction Steps:

  • Open a chat with a person Right click the Azure Boards icon in the toolbar, click Settings
  • In the new screen, select the organization name, click Continue
  • Set the Project to a DIFFERENT project than the one originally used, Click Continue
  • The window closes Return to the settings screen and note that the message at the top indicates that "Azure Boards is currently linked to [previous project path] for your chat"

Troubleshooting steps taken:

  • Change the project path in the settings, as described above - failed
  • Uninstall the chat app, reinstall, reconnect. Settings are carried over from the previous configuration, so there is no opportunity to change the project path - failed
  • Attempted all above steps from teams.microsoft.com - failed
