It’s Friday and we are back with some great content from this wonderful Azure DevOps community. I’ll keep the commentary to a minimum and let you enjoy some community posts.

Easily rename your Git default branch from master to main
Scott shares how to change the default branch name of your git project from master to main (or whatever you want to pick – trunk works well too).

Retarget PRs
If you follow Scott’s tip above, you may need to retarget existing pull requests. Ed has a tool to help with that.

    Dear Microsoft,

    I do not see another place for feedback that will be recognized:
    I am a senior developer using Microsoft technologies for more than 25 as a developer and my whole life as a user.
    Microsoft offers great products. I recently evaluated Azure DevOps for our company and its really good and much better that any alternative solution.
    But every week I really have also frustrating times with Microsoft at all. Many projects that should have high priority have low activity, even they were announced as the “future”. There is a lot stuff with the PowerShell PackageManager at all, PowerShellGet and Azure Artifacts integration broken, Microsoft projects relating to these components are nearly dead.
    This time the Azure DevOps / Jira integration is a missing part and it seems nearly never worked for most people correctly. Just check the reviews of the plugin in the Atlassian Marketplace.
    I made some specific comment about the current (6 weeks) “totally broken” issue here.

    Best regards
    Marco Borm
