Create a public project in your organization
Azure DevOps Services - Public Projects
A public project is similar to any other project that you add to your organization. Each project provides a repository for source code and a place for a group of people to plan, track progress, and collaborate on building software solutions.
A public project allows non members of a project and users who aren't signed in read-only, limited access to the project's artifacts and services. For details, see Default roles & access for public projects.
You can add a public project to your existing organization, or create an organization and create a public project at that time. If you want to make an existing private project public, you can change the project's visibility.
- You must have an organization created in Azure DevOps. If you don't have one, do that now.
- As an organization owner, you can create projects. If you're not the owner, then you must be a member of the Project Collection Administrators Group or have your Create new projects permission set to Allow.
Enable anonymous access to projects for your organization
Before you can create a public project, you must enable anonymous access for your organization.
Your web portal uses either the New navigation or Previous navigation user interface. Choose the New navigation tab if the New Navigation feature is enabled. You'll see a vertical sidebar along with other navigational features when New Navigation has been enabled for the signed-in user or the organization. Choose Previous navigation when you see a top-level, blue-bar—indicating that New navigation isn't enabled. For more information, see Web portal navigation.
Add a public project to your organization
Share the URL of your public project
To provide instant access, share the URL of your public project with those people you want to have access to the project in a read-only mode. For example, you can share this portion of the URL shown under Clone to your computer.
