Billing overview for Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2020 | Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 - TFS 2015

Set up billing when you need more than the free tier of resources in your organization, or to buy other features offered by Microsoft or other companies.

The free tier includes:

  • Five Azure DevOps users (Basic)
  • Free tier of Microsoft-hosted CI/CD (one concurrent job, up to 30 hours per month)
  • 2 GiB of Azure Artifacts storage
  • One self-hosted CI/CD concurrent job
  • 20,000 virtual user minutes of cloud-based load testing

All charges appear on your monthly Azure bill. Azure supports payment by credit card and invoiced billing through the Enterprise Agreement (EA), Cloud Solution Providers (CSP), and more.

You aren't required to pay for or use any other Azure services.
