Azure DevOps Basic+TestPlans access level | Explained

This is a new access level that was recently introduced. As the name says this access level allows you to access TestPlans and Test Suites in addition to all the features with a Basic access level. Users with “Basic+TestPlans” would be able to create TestPlans, Test Suites and also add testcases to test suites directly. In addition to this they would be also able to edit testcases directly from a TestPlans whereas a basic user won’t be able to edit the testcases directly from a TestPlan.

This access level is quite costly when compared with Basic and it would be billed at about $52 per month per user.So incase if your company uses a lot of Basic+TestPlans licenses, keep a close watch on it and remove the users who are not using it regularly as this is billed on a monthly basis.
