Azure DevOps Rust API


azure_devops_rust_api implements a Rust interface to the Azure DevOps REST API (version 7.1).

The crate is autogenerated from the Azure DevOps OpenAPI spec.

The crate contains 38 modules


Usage overview

The crate has many features/modules, but the general approach is similar for all:

  • Obtain an authentication credential
    • See examples for how to do this using the azure_identity crate
  • Create a client for the feature/module that you want to use
    • Normally you need to create a client for the top-level module that you want to use, (e.g. git_client), and then one for the submodule (e.g. repositories_client).
  • Use the client to make operation requests
    • Each operation has zero or more mandatory parameters and zero or more optional parameters. Mandatory parameters are passed as parameters on the operation request method. Optional parameters may be provided by calling methods on the "builder" object returned by the operation request method. The builder object is finalized by invoking await, which transforms the builder into a Future (via the IntoFuture trait) and awaits the response.

Code example

Example usage (from examples/git_repo_list.rs):

    // Get authentication credential either from a PAT ("ADO_TOKEN")
    // or via the az cli.
    let credential = utils::get_credential()

    // Get ADO configuration via environment variables
    let organization = env::var("ADO_ORGANIZATION")
        .expect("Must define ADO_ORGANIZATION");
    let project = env::var("ADO_PROJECT")
        .expect("Must define ADO_PROJECT");

    // Create a git client
    let git_client = git::ClientBuilder::new(credential).build();

    // Get all repositories in the specified organization/project
    let repos = git_client
        .list(organization, project)

    // Output repo names
    for repo in repos.iter() {
        println!("{}", repo.name);
    println!("{} repos found", repos.len());

Individual modules in the API are enabled via Rust features.

See the features section of Cargo.toml for the full list of features.

Example application Cargo.toml dependency spec showing how to specify desired features:

azure_devops_rust_api = { version = "0.14.1", features = ["git", "pipelines"] }


See examples directory.

Define environment variables:

export ADO_ORGANIZATION=<organization-name>
export ADO_PROJECT=<project-name>

To run the examples you need to provide authentication credentials either via:

  • A Personal Access Token (PAT), provided via the environment variable ADO_TOKEN
  • The az CLI, where you just need to have authenticated by running az login before running the examples.

Run the example via cargo run --example. You will need to enable the features required by the example. If you don't specify the necessary features you do get a helpful error message.


cargo run --example git_repo_get --features="git" <repo-name>
