The Azure CLI with the Azure DevOps extension has replaced the VSTS CLI. The VSTS CLI has been deprecated and will no longer be receiving new features. We recommend that users of the VSTS CLI switch to the Azure CLI and add the Azure DevOps extension.


VSTS CLI is a command line interface for Azure DevOps Services and Team Foundation Server (TFS). With the VSTS CLI, you can manage and work with resources including pull requests, work items, builds, and more.


VSTS CLI works with Azure DevOps Services and Team Foundation Server 2017 Update 2 and later.

Install it

See the install steps for instructions on installing the VSTS CLI on Windows, Linux, or Mac.
