I developed a new Github Action to create an Azure DevOps Bug Work Item for failing Github Workflow actions.
For Azure DevOps there are already some Extensions that create a Bug when a release is failing, but I wanted to have something simular in Github Workflows.
With the Github Action Azure DevOps Bug Work Item you can create an Azure DevOps Bug Work Item for failed Github Workflow Actions.

As your team identifies code defects or bugs, they can add them to the backlog and track them similar to requirements. Or, they can schedule them to be fixed within a sprint along with other tasks.

For creating the Azure DevOps Bug Work Item we need to create an Azure DevOps Personal Access Token.

The minimal scope authorization for Work Items is Read, write & manage.
Add the PAT output as a secret (let’s say with the name
PAT) in the GitHub repository.
This Github Action uses the Github REST API to retrieve detailed information about the failed Github Workflow Run.
Create a Github Personal Access Token via the Github Developer Settings.
Your Github Token needs the following permissions:
Add the Github Token a secret (let’s say with the name
githubtoken) in the GitHub repository.
Hope you enjoy this new Github Action!
