Analytics For Azure DevOps Services is Now Generally Available

Anand Guruswamy

Reporting has been an important capability for Azure DevOps customers who rely on Analytics to make data driven decisions.

Today, we’re excited to announce that the following Analytics features listed below will be included in our Azure DevOps Services offering at no additional cost. Customers will start to see these changes rolled out to their accounts soon.

Analytics Features Generally Available For Azure DevOps Services

  • Analytics Widgets – configurable modules that display data on a dashboard and help you monitor the progress of your work.

  • In Product Experiences – Analytics powered experiences within Azure DevOps and outside a dashboard that surface data and insights.

    • Top Failing Test Report – get insights about top failing tests in your pipeline to improve pipeline reliability and reduce test debt.

We will continue to offer Power BI Integration through Analytics Views and direct access to our OData Endpoint in preview for all Azure DevOps Services customers. Look for more information about the pricing model for Power BI integration and OData by June 2019.

Current Azure DevOps Services customers who have the Analytics marketplace extension installed can continue to use Analytics as they did before and do not need to follow any additional steps to get Analytics. As such, we will be deprecating the Analytics marketplace extension for hosted customers.

Azure DevOps Server 2019

For Azure DevOps Server, Analytics will remain in preview as an installable extension on the local marketplace and will become generally available in the next major release.

The Azure DevOps Analytics offering is the future of reporting and we will continue to invest in new features driven by Analytics. To learn more about Analytics and the experiences it currently enables:

    Hello. Thanks for the article. What does it mean that the Analytics will be available for Azure Devops Server next major release? An Update 1 of 2019? When could we expect that to roll out? Thanks for response. 

    • Anand GuruswamyMicrosoft employee 0

      Hi Zdenek, the next major release will be Azure DevOps Server 2020. That is when we intend to make Analytics GA for our on premises offering. Thanks and let me know if you have any more questions!

    How is the analytics improve the quality?
    Is the testing in Azure DevOps model automated or manual including the Quality Test?

    • Anand GuruswamyMicrosoft employee 0

      Hi Mahmoud, currently, the test data in Azure DevOps Analytics is automated test data. Here is an example. Does that help answer your question?

    Hi,could you tell me,How long that might take based on other collections that have added this extension in the cloud?Our collection database is about 300 GB. Thanks

    • Anand GuruswamyMicrosoft employee 0

      Hi Merry, I’m not understanding your question. Are you asking how long it will take Analytics to populate its tables with your collections’ data?

      • Kelly, John 0

        I believe that is indeed the question. I don’t believe we have anywhere near 300gb, but ours has been running, “Analytics is getting your data ready for reporting in your colllection. This process may take some time. Please check back later.” for about a week now? How long should this take and are there any logs that would indicate if it’s failing in some way or if there is some indication of progress? Thanks.

          In case anyone else stumbles across this thread, simply updating to 2019.1.1 seems to have reset the process for us. After updating I was able to again “Enable Analytics” and within a few minutes they were available across the collection. No real clue why that worked.

    Hi Anand, those widgets seem not configurable. I added a couple of them, they show details of current sprint. In the old tfs reporting, we were able to play with different parameters in the sql server reports. How this can be done with the widgets?
