3: Resolution of the work item is optional based on resources, time, and risk.
Reference name=Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Priority, Data type=Integer
Bug, Change Request, Epic, Feature, Impediment, Issue, Product backlog item, Requirement, Risk, Shared Step, Task, Test Case, User Story
A subjective rating of the relative uncertainty around the successful completion of a user story.
Defined allowed values are:
1 - High
2 - Medium
3 - Low
Reference name=Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Risk, Data type=String

Reference name=Microsoft.VSTS.Common.Triage, Data type=String
The sequence of items on a product backlog page is determined according to where you have added or dragged the items. As you drag items, a background process updates either the Backlog Priority (Scrum) or Stack Rank (Agile, Basic, CMMI) field. These fields determine the order in which backlog items appear on a backlog page. They are assigned to type="Order" in the ProcessConfiguration file.
