With Azure Artifacts, you can publish your NuGet packages to public or private feeds and share them with others based on your feed's visibility settings. This article will guide you through connecting to Azure Artifacts and publishing and restoring your NuGet packages.
An Azure Artifacts feed. Create a new feed if you don't have one already.
The latest NuGet version.
Connect to feed
Select Artifacts, and then select your feed from the dropdown menu.
Select Connect to feed.
Follow the instructions in Project setup to set up your nuget.config file.
Select Build and Release > Packages.
Select your feed from the dropdown menu or create one if you haven't.
Select Connect to feed.
Select NuGet and follow the instruction to connect to your feed.
Run the following command to publish your packages to your feed. Replace the placeholders with the appropriate information:
nuget push <PACKAGE_PATH> -src https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/<ORGANIZATION_NAME>/<PROJECT_NAME>/_packaging/<FEED_NAME>/nuget/v3/index.json -ApiKey <ANY_STRING>
ApiKey is required, but you can use any arbitrary value when pushing to Azure Artifacts feeds.
nuget push MyPackage.5.0.2.nupkg -src https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/MyOrg/MyProject/_packaging/MyFeed/nuget/v3/index.json -ApiKey AZ
Publish packages from external sources
Create a personal access token (PAT) with packaging read and write scope.
Add your package source to your nuget.config file. This will add your PAT to your nuget.config file. Store this file in a safe location, and make sure that you don't check it into source control. See NuGet sources for more details.
nuget sources Add -Name <SOURCE_NAME> -Source https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/<ORGANIZATION_NAME>/<PROJECT_NAME>/_packaging/<FEED_NAME>/nuget/v3/index.json -UserName <USER_NAME> -Password <PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN> -config <PATH_TO_NUGET_CONFIG_FILE>
Publish your package. See NuGet push for more details.
nuget push <PACKAGE_PATH> -src <SOURCE_NAME> -ApiKey <ANY_STRING>
nuget sources Add -Name "MySource" -Source https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/MyOrg/MyProject/_packaging/MyFeed/nuget/v3/index.json -UserName MyUserName -Password YourPersonalAccessToken -config ./nuget.config nuget push nupkgs/mypackage.1.1.8.nupkg -src MySource -ApiKey AZ
