Azure DevOps Server pricing

Move to the cloud at your own pace by acquiring Azure DevOps Server through a subscription or license

Azure DevOps Server 2019 licensing

Azure DevOps Server 2019 requires an Azure DevOps Server license and a Windows operating system license (Windows Server recommended) for each machine running Azure DevOps Server, plus a client access license (CAL) for each person connecting to Azure DevOps Server. CALs aren’t required for users who just access work items on Azure DevOps Server. Simply assign these users stakeholder access, at no cost.

Included extensions

Many Azure DevOps Server extensions are free, and others are included with Visual Studio Enterprise subscriptions. If you don’t have Visual Studio Enterprise, you can pay for these extensions monthly.

Paid extensions

Test Manager, Package Management, Private Pipelines, and other Azure DevOps Server extensions can be purchased separately.

Subscription purchasing

No need to make a three-year purchasing commitment. All Azure DevOps Server subscriptions are month-to-month so you cancel anytime. Here’s how:

Buy at least one Visual Studio subscription for the server license


Visual Studio Professional


Visual Studio Enterprise

  • Visual Studio subscriptions include a server license for Azure DevOps plus an individual CAL for the subscriber.

Buy Azure DevOps for Azure DevOps Server CALs


Buy Azure DevOps users

  • Azure DevOps users each have a server CAL and can connect to any Azure DevOps Server in your organization.
  • Extensions like Test Manager and Package Management and additional Private Pipelines can be purchased through the Visual Studio Marketplace.

With subscription purchasing, you’re set to go with Azure DevOps, so you can move to the cloud when you’re ready.
