The Wiki extension on the marketplace has been deprecated now and is no more available for installation. We have released the new and revamped Wiki in VSTS which is a built-in feature and not an extension. Currently VSTS Wiki is in preview mode which means that you can turn it on or off depending on your requirement.

I am an existing wiki extension user. How do I migrate my existing markdown pages to the new Wiki?
If you are an existing Wiki extension user, then you can migrate your wiki pages to the new wiki using an open source tool developed by Microsoft. Learn more about how to migrate your existing wiki pages to the new VSTS Wiki.
Note: Both Wiki extension and the new VSTS Wiki can co-exist on the same VSTS project. We recommend to uninstall the Wiki extension after you have migrated your existing markdown pages from the extension to VSTS Wiki.
Capabilities of the old Wiki extension
Have your documentation in one place - right inside Visual Studio Team Services.
A visual editor that you will love
Writing documentation does not have to be a pain. We believe that with a user friendly and intuitive editor writing can actually be fun.
Great for Product Owners
Use the wiki to sketch out your product road map and make sure everyone is on the same page. Your development team will love you for it.
Based on Markdown
Every wiki page is just a simple markdown file so if you are more comfortable writing markdown you always have the option to edit the markdown source directly and see a live preview of your page.
Transparent content storage
Wiki pages are stored as markdown files in code repositories. Both git and tfvc are supported. This makes the wiki:
The integrated nature of the wiki allows for endless possibilities in dynamic content.
In this version you are already able to embed work items into pages. But there is a whole laundry list of integrations we are working on to embed content like:
Easy on the eye
Spending a lot of time writing and reading documentation? We want you do have a good time doing it so we go the extra mile to make the look and feel outstanding.
Built with extensibility in mind
Want to see diagrams, mind maps and more in your wikis?
With the extensibility model we enable integrations with existing tools to really make your wiki pages come alive.
