Visual Studio Team Services is now Azure DevOps Services

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

On September 10, 2018, Microsoft renamed Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to Azure DevOps Services. For more information about this change, see this blog post.

VSTS features are now separate services:

VSTS feature name Azure DevOps service name Description
Build & release Azure Pipelines Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) that works with any language, platform, and cloud.
Code Azure Repos Unlimited cloud-hosted private Git and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) repos for your project.
Work Azure Boards Work tracking with Kanban boards, backlogs, team dashboards, and custom reporting.
Test Azure Test Plans All-in-one planned and exploratory testing solution.
Packages (extension) Azure Artifacts Maven, npm, and NuGet package feeds from public and private sources.

Currently, you can acquire only Azure Pipelines as a separate service. In the future, you'll be able to acquire each service separately or all together as Azure DevOps Services. If you are already a VSTS subscriber, you have access to all of the services now.

Can I still use

Yes. We've moved to the new domain name as the primary URL for new organizations. (Specifically, it's{your organization}/{your project}.) If you want to change your URL to be based on as the primary, an organization administrator can change this from the organization settings page.

We will continue to post news about this transition on the Microsoft DevOps blog and in the Azure DevOps release notes.

Can I still use the old interface?

Yes. Although Azure DevOps Services features redesigned navigation, you can still use the previous user interface by choosing your profile icon and selecting Preview features from the drop-down menu.

Open Preview features

Then, switch the New Navigation option to Off.

Turning off the new navigation UI

Turning off New Navigation also changes the Azure DevOps Services names to the corresponding old VSTS feature names, such as Work instead of Boards.

To return to the Azure DevOps service-oriented UI, choose your profile icon, select Preview features, and re-enable New Navigation.

What about Team Foundation Server (TFS)?

On November 19, 2018, Azure DevOps Server 2019 was announced as the next version of Team Foundation Server, our on-premises Agile workflow and DevOps product. Currently, the Azure DevOps Server 2019 Release Candidate 1 is available for preview.

Azure DevOps Server 2019 uses the new navigation user interface, with a vertical sidebar to navigate to the main service areas: Boards, Repos, Pipelines, and more. To learn more, see Web portal navigation.
