Visual Studio Code extensions

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install the Visual Studio Team Services extension for my Visual Studio but unfortunately due to some policy restrictions, I don't have access to install directly from the marketplace. So I was hoping to be able to sideload it by downloading it but I am unable to find the proper URL for it. Can someone help me out.

    Here is the actual link to the extension I am looking for.

    Team Services

    >> So I was hoping to be able to sideload it by downloading it but I am unable to find the proper URL for it.

    Please have a look at this: VS Code Extension Marketplace and under ‘Common Questions’, you can find the following information:

    An extension's direct download URL is in the form:

    https://${publisher}.gallery.vsassets.io/_apis/public/gallery/publisher/${publisher}/extension/${extension name}/${version}/assetbyname/Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.VSIXPackage

    For Visual Studio Team Services, the URL would be:

    https://ms-vsts.gallery.vsassets.io/_apis/public/gallery/publisher/ms-vsts/extension/team/1.113.0/assetbyname/Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.VSIXPackage

    Once you've downloaded an extension, you can side load it by renaming the file name and extension to .vsix and then using the Install from VSIX... command in the Extensions View command dropdown. See Installing Extensions for more details.

    Followed the above steps, I successfully installed this extension as below:

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Thank you. That worked. I wish it was clearer in the support pages what the sideloading URL is to make it easier in situations like this.
