Create a public project
Azure DevOps Services - Public Projects
A public project is similar to any other project that you add to your Azure DevOps Services 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 Azure DevOps 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 Azure DevOps organization created. If you don't have one, do that now.
- As an Azure DevOps 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 Azure DevOps organization.
Choose New navigation if you see a vertical sidebar or if the New Navigation feature is enabled. The vertical sidebar along with other navigational features are enabled when New Navigation has been enabled for the signed-in user or the organization. To learn how to use the web portal effectively, see Web portal navigation.
Choose Previous navigation when you see a top-level, blue-bar and when using the web portal for on-premises TFS.
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.
