Restore a project

Azure DevOps Services

You can restore a deleted project up to 28 days after it was deleted. This article shows you how.


To restore a project, you must have the "delete project" permission set to Allow. To learn how to check your permissions, see View permissions.


A recently deleted project is only viewable when there is a project that has been deleted from an organization within the last 28 days.
