Changing Organization name in Azure DevOps - what happens to the URL?

We've recently changed our company name. And would like to change it in DevOps to reflect this.

I am concerned however, that we have pipelines, connectors and code that references the existing https://OldCompanyName.visualstudio.com/ url.

What happens to this if I simply change the organization name in DevOps? Does it change to https://NewCompanyName.visualstudio.com/ ?

There is also the option of changing to https://dev.azure.com/NewCompanyName/

In either case, what happens to the legacy url that we've been using?

    If you change the organization name then all the URLs will be broken that you coded to the old name. You have to fix them. Note that you should be using https://dev.azure.com/<org>/<project> already as a URL. The old URL was deprecated years ago and I'm surprised it is still working. You'll need to switch anyway.
