Import using WIQL

Read about how you can import against a stored WIQL query in Avion.

If you haven't yet read our primer on importing, check it out before you read on.


Our Azure DevOps integration allow you to store a WIQL query, which Avion will use when you import data. This can be used to reduce the amount of noise in the story map, or simply to only import what is really required.

To enable WIQL for imports, head to the configuration panel and select it from under Importer options.

If you are fluent in WIQL, you might have some great ideas on how to get the most out of this already. Here are a few ideas of our own.
