Package Management is now Azure Artifacts

Azure DevOps Services

Recently, Azure DevOps Services (previously Visual Studio Team Services) underwent a big UI update. This update moved many popular hubs around, including the old Packages hub in the Build and Release hub group. As you may know already, the Build and Release hub group has become Azure Pipelines, and the previous Packages hub has been moved out to its own area known as Azure Artifacts.

How to find your packages in Azure DevOps Services

Before the UI update, your Package Management home was in the Packages hub of the Build and Release hub group. You would navigate to it like so:

Go to Azure Artifacts in the Packages hub of the Build and Release hub group.

If you're still using the previous navigation, or TFS, this is still how you would access your packages.

The new update has introduced a new, top-level area that is the home of Package Management in Azure DevOps Services. This area is known as Azure Artifacts and can be reached simply by selecting the Artifacts button on the left of the UI:

Go to Azure Artifacts by selecting the Artifacts button on the left of the UI.
