Developers and project managers need to collaborate with other colleagues on their team and need a system to store information, edit it easily and be able to search through it.

Azure DevOps Wiki is a documentation solution within the Azure DevOps Suite. It can help developers address their documentation needs at various stages of their product development, such as creating specifications, writing meeting reports, or any general information that they would like to share within the team. Since it's part of the Azure DevOps Suite, it's also well integrated with the rest of the services in the suite, such as Azure Boards or Azure Repos. Azure DevOps Wikis are powered by an underlying Git Repository, which also enables powerful workflows for developers.

In this lab, you will create and manage a basic project wiki.

Please be aware that this lab creates an Azure DevOps environment that can take up to fifteen minutes to become available. Please ensure you have enough time available before starting the lab.
