How to configure the "blocked" icon so that it appears in the Task Board

Originally from ticket #343.

Hi

In Process Editor, I modified the Bug "WIT". I added a "Blocked" field (of type Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.Blocked) with a rule for "AllowedValues" that allows only one answer : "Yes".

Now, I want the little icon for "blocked" Tasks to appear on bugs in the Task Board. How do I do that in the config files?

Thanks for your help!

    Hi Isabelle,

    Once the Blocked field is added to the Bug work item type, the BlockedField property must be set to point to the Blocked field and the BlockedValue property must be set to yes in the definition of visible work items in the configuration mapping file. For example, for the bug work item type, the line

    <WorkItemType Name="Bug" AssignmentField="System.AssignedTo" DescriptionField="Microsoft.VSTS.TCM.ReproSteps" />

    will become

    <WorkItemType Name="Bug" AssignmentField="System.AssignedTo" DescriptionField="Microsoft.VSTS.TCM.ReproSteps" BlockedField="Microsoft.VSTS.CMMI.Blocked" BlockedValue="yes" />

    This should make the forbidden sign appear next to the work item number.
