Inheritance Process

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2019

You customize your work tracking experience to support your business and reporting needs. The most common customizations include adding a custom field, modifying a work item form, or adding a custom work item type.

Most customers use the Inheritance process model, which provides a convenient user interface to support customization of the work tracking experience.

A select few customers use the Hosted XML process model, which requires that they have opted into this method. This model relies on updating XML files and then importing the process template of these files. To learn more, see Customize your work tracking experience.

With Azure DevOps Server 2019, you have a choice of using the Inheritance process model or the On-premises XML process model to support customizations. The choice is made when you create a project collection and choose the process model for the projects that you'll create in the collection. For details, see On-premises XML process model.
