Visual Studio subscribers

Add active Visual Studio subscribers for free to your VSTS account. We’ll automatically recognize them when they sign in. They won’t count against your 5 free users or as paid users.

Visual Studio subscribers can access Basic features. Some subscriptions like Visual Studio Enterprise also include features available through extensions, like Test Manager and Package Management.

If you need to access multiple VSTS accounts, for example when working on projects for different customers, then buying a Visual Studio subscription can be an attractive alternative to paying for those users separately in each VSTS account.
