Get Azure DevOps workitem links across projects

Hi Folks,

I am pulling the workitem data from Azure DevOps from a specific project.

That projects has some workitem links which has workitem links outside the projects (workitem link from other project in same organization)


I tried to use below Odata query, however it seems it only pulls links from current project:



    Source = OData.Feed("$select=WorkItemId,Title,WorkItemType,State&$expand=Links($select=SourceWorkItemId,TargetWorkItemId,LinkTypeName;$expand=TargetWorkItem($select=WorkItemId,Title,State))", null, [Implementation="2.0"]),
    #"Expanded Links" = Table.ExpandTableColumn(Source, "Links", {"SourceWorkItemId", "TargetWorkItemId", "LinkTypeName", "TargetWorkItem"}, {"Links.SourceWorkItemId", "Links.TargetWorkItemId", "Links.LinkTypeName", "Links.TargetWorkItem"}),
    #"Expanded Links.TargetWorkItem" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Expanded Links", "Links.TargetWorkItem", {"WorkItemId", "Title", "State"}, {"Links.TargetWorkItem.WorkItemId", "Links.TargetWorkItem.Title", "Links.TargetWorkItem.State"}),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Expanded Links.TargetWorkItem", each true)
    #"Filtered Rows"




Can you help with getting links outside the current project?


Any suggesttions / comments - Most welcome!

I have the same question. Essentially, the remoted links are not part of the 'Links' table. Inspecting the ADO data with PowerShell it looks like the remote links are in a `url` field, but I can't access that field with the OData queries that are provided in the documentation above 😞

Hi, did anyone find a solution to this? I have the exact same problem. We want to query the status of all the related predecessors from an epic work item. These predecessor links can go to different projects as well as within the same as the epic. What we get in the 'Links' table are only relations within the same project however. Anyone has a solution on how to get the 'remote links' work items in a similar fashion?

Hi @deepak_mhaskar ,


As the official document said, The Analytics service and Power BI reports support creation of reports that span two or more projects.
