How to configure access policies to Work Items on Azure DevOps

One of the strengths of Azure DevOps is that it’s very scalable. It can be configured to work for company of all sizes: from small teams of a few people, to a large enterprise with thousands of users.

When we work in complex environment we should follow the best practices to choose how to organize people and projects on our Azure DevOps Organization. This is a great piece of documentation to get started when we work in an enterprise scenario and I recommend reading it.

A general (but please double check if it is suitable for your environment) guideline is to work inside a single project and create many teams.

With this kind of setup is common that customers ask me to provide a way to limit visibility of work-items. This way only some people could access some work items. This is to provide better focus to teams, for example. But your project could have other needs to do this.

While I was writing this blog post, my dear friend MVP Gian Maria Ricci also blogged about this. His blog post is excellent so I’ll stop here and redirect to his page.
