Azure DevOps Services - Public Projects

When you're viewing a public project, you're able to browse and download the code stored within the repositories, and view code-related objects such as commits, branches, and pull requests.


By default you have read-only access to the code in the repository. To perform operations such as forking, creating branches, and making pull requests, you must be invited to contribute.

Here we focus on what you can do as an anonymous user who isn't signed in as a contributor to a project.

Open Repos > Files or Code > Files

Choose Repos > Files.

You can also choose the Download icon at the right side of the screen to download either all of the files in the currently selected folder, or the currently selected file.
