Turn a service on or off

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2020 | Azure DevOps Server 2019

Control which services are available through the web portal, by turning a service on or off. Turning off a service hides the service to all members of the project. However, if you choose to enable a service later, all your existing data is available.
