Repo Access permissions in Azure DevOps

Not all the users will have access to Azure DevOps Repositories by default. Only if the user has either Basic or above permissions access level, then the user would be able to access Azure Repos. Stakeholders won’t be able to even view the repos or edit/create any new repositories (They need to be upgraded to basic to access Repos)

Access levels that would have Repo access permissions in Azure DevOps

  • Basic access
  • Basic + TestPlan access
  • Visual Studio Professional
  • Visual Studio Enterprise
  • Visual Studio TestPlans

Users with above access levels would be able to access the repositories in the projects that are assigned to them. Just upgrading them to any of the license/access level wont give them access, they need to be added to specific projects and to the specific groups in order to access those repositories.
