Visual Studio subscribers

Add active Visual Studio subscribers for free to your VSTS account. We’ll automatically recognize them when they sign in. They won’t count against your 5 free users or as paid users.

Visual Studio subscribers can access Basic features. Some subscriptions like Visual Studio Enterprise also include features available through extensions, like Test Manager and Package Management.

If you need to access multiple VSTS accounts, for example when working on projects for different customers, then buying a Visual Studio subscription can be an attractive alternative to paying for those users separately in each VSTS account.


Team Foundation Server included

Each paid user in your VSTS account also gets a TFS client access license (CAL). This lets you buy monthly access to TFS for your team. Learn about TFS, or learn how to buy TFS access

Build & Release

Create, queue, and monitor cross-platform builds and releases with this task-based service. Use Hosted Pipelines to run builds and deploy releases with Microsoft-managed agents, or use Private Pipelines to run builds and deploy releases on machines that you manage, running agent software from Microsoft. Each pipeline lets you run 1 build or deploy 1 release at a time.
