Visual Studio Team services Python

Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services CLI

VSTS CLI is a new command line interface for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) and Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2017 Update 2 and later.

VSTS CLI is currently in preview but we encourage you to give it a try and provide feedback (or contribute).

Get started

Refer to the install guide for detailed install instructions for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Also refer to the "get started" guide for in-depth instructions including first-time setup steps.

For help, pass the -h or --help argument, for example:

vsts -h
vsts code -h

Commands

Use the VSTS CLI to work with and manage build, code repositories, projects, work items, and more in your VSTS account or on-premises Team Foundation Server collection.

Here are just a few of the commands:

  • vsts build queue
  • vsts code pr create
  • vsts code pr list
  • vsts code pr complete
  • vsts code pr reviewers add
  • vsts code pr work-items list
  • vsts project create
  • vsts work item create
  • vsts work item update

See the full list of available commands.

Login (setup credentials)

Create a personal access token and provide to the VSTS CLI via the login command:

vsts login --instance https://MYACCOUNT.visualstudio.com --token MYTOKEN

Using VSTS CLI Behind a Proxy

The VSTS CLI picks the network proxy configuration from the environment variables HTTP_PROXY, and HTTPS_PROXY.

Configure defaults, Git aliases, and more

You can change your default settings using the vsts configure command, for example you can set the default output format for all commands. The options are:

  • JSON
  • JSON (with color highlighting)
  • Table (human-readable tabular output)
  • TSV (tab and new line delimited)

You can also add aliases in Git for certain VSTS CLI commands. For example, git pr list will be an alias for vsts code pr list.

Querying and filtering output

You can use the --query parameter and the JMESPath query syntax to customize your output, for example:

Result
-------------------------------------------------------------
[Demos]\CLI Team
[Demos]\Demo Team
Fabrikam Fiber

Examples and snippets

For more usage examples, see the official VSTS CLI documentation.
