Billing overview

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2022 - Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018

If you need more than the free tier of resources in your organization, you can set up billing. When you set up billing you can also buy other features offered by Microsoft or other companies.

Free tier

The free tier includes the following aspects:

  • First five users free (Basic license)
  • Azure Pipelines:
    • One Microsoft-hosted CI/CD (one concurrent job, up to 30 hours per month)
    • One self-hosted CI/CD concurrent job
  • Azure Boards: Work item tracking and Kanban boards
  • Azure Repos: Unlimited private Git repos
  • Azure Artifacts: Two GiB free per organization

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.

Services billed via Azure

During your first purchase for your organization, you're prompted to select the Azure subscription to use for billing. The subscription can be part of your Enterprise Agreement, Pay-As-You-Go, Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), or other types of Azure subscriptions. All services get billed via Azure. You aren't required to pay for or use any other Azure services.
