Get started

As individual contributors to Azure DevOps, learn about how permissions and access to features are managed, default permission assignments, how to view your permissions, and how to increase or trace your permissions.

For organization owners or project administrators, learn about authentication and authorization, how to add and manage users and their access, and set organization policies.

For project collection and project administrators, learn more about security and how to add and manage user access, and secure projects and deployment.



The primary tasks for administrators to secure Azure DevOps are to assign access levels, set permissions, assign security roles, and set policies. Development leads and pipeline administrators should become familiar with setting permissions and policies on repositories, branches, and pipeline resources.
