Access to 'Azure DevOps' API via R

Implementation of 'Azure DevOps' <> API calls. It enables the extraction of information about repositories, build and release definitions and individual releases. It also helps create repositories and work items within a project without logging into 'Azure DevOps'. There is the ability to use any API service with a shell for any non-predefined call.

The aim of vstsr is to make it easier to connect between R and Visual Studio Team Services.

Commands will include getting repository information, git services and work item information.




There are two ways to use the vstsr package:

  1. Creating an R6 object using vsts_account that contains simple methods to do all of the functions that are available in the package.
  2. Create an authorisation key using vsts_auth_key and then using that to run each of the functions within the package.

Method 1:

proj <- vsts_account$new(user = '<USER NAME>', pass= '<PASSWORD>', 
                         domain = '<VS DOMAIN>', project = '<VS PROJECT>')

Method 2:

auth_key <- vsts_auth_key(user = '<USER NAME>', pass= '<PASSWORD>')
