Hosted XML process model

Azure Boards


Feature availability: The Hosted XML process model is only supported for select accounts of Azure DevOps Services.

The Hosted XML process model provides support for customizing work tracking objects and Agile tools for a project by modifying and importing a process template. Updates made to the process template are applied to projects that were created using that process.

You can perform the following tasks with the Hosted XML process model.
