Getting Started with Azure DevOps – part 2


In the previous blogpost I’ve setup a project within Azure DevOps, connected a repository with an editor (Visual Studio Code) and created a build pipeline. The next step will be to create a release pipeline in order to deploy or update a release. Let’s see how that will work out.

Log in to Azure DevOps and select Releases which can be found under Pipelines. Select on the page New pipeline.

Select Empty job

First thing to do is to add an Artifact

Select the correct source and save so that we have an artifact that can be used in the release pipeline.

Set a stage name e.g. vnet-core-infra by pressing Stage 1, select save and OK.

The next thing is to create one or more tasks, so select 1 job, 0 task

Select the + sign on the agent job and search for resource

Select Add to add it to the agent job and select it again. Now it’s time to fill the form with the correct parameters in order to create a working release pipeline. In the picture are mine parameters.

Select save and OK

I’ve changed the name of the pipeline to Core Infra – Network

Now that I’ve created a release pipeline, the next step will be to actually create the network. So I need to create a release. Once the release is created the job will be running and it turns out that the release has gone well.

Azure Portal:

I know that this is very basic and some things can be better, but it was a start for me.
