Azure Pipelines provides a quick, easy, and safe way to automate building your projects with consistent and quality code that’s readily available to users.
Use Azure Pipelines to support the following scenarios:
- Works with any language or platform
- Deploys to different types of targets at the same time
- Integrates with Azure deployments
- Builds on Windows, Linux, or Mac machines
- Integrates with GitHub
- Works with open-source projects
If you use public projects, Azure Pipelines is free. For more information, see What is a public project? If you use private projects, you can run up to 1,800 minutes (30 hours) of pipeline jobs for free every month.

First Azure Pipeline
When you define a pipeline, you can define it as a collection of jobs. When a pipeline runs, you can run multiple jobs as part of that pipeline. Each running job consumes a parallel job that runs on an agent. When there aren’t enough parallel jobs available for your organization, the jobs are queued up and run one after the other.
In Azure Pipelines, you can run parallel jobs on Microsoft-hosted infrastructure or your own (self-hosted) infrastructure. Each parallel job allows you to run a single job at a time in your organization. You don’t need to pay for parallel jobs if you’re using an on-premises server. The concept of parallel jobs only applies to Azure DevOps Services.
|Number of parallel jobs
|Up to 10 free Microsoft-hosted parallel jobs that can run for up to 360 minutes (6 hours) each time
|No overall time limit per month
|One free job that can run for up to 60 minutes each time
|1,800 minutes (30 hours) per month
Create your first Azure Pipeline
Fork https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/pipelines-java to your Github account
Create new pipeline from your DevOps project (https://dev.azure.com/51sec/Test/)
For example, in my case, I have created a new organization 51sec, and a new project Test.
Select GitHub (YAML) to the next step
Choose the forked repository (JohnnyNetsec/pipelines-java) to get YAML file
Review and Run your pipeline
Note: regarding Build & deploy to Java web app, check this url: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/devops/pipelines/languages/java
- trigger: none
You will get a failed errors for the Run:
If your project is public, you will need to provide a valid reason and a bit more information to support your request.
You will be also able to see the test runs with test resultes from Runs page.
Once you downloaded this artifact and unzip it to a folder. You can open index.html file to view the content of “Hello world sample web app”:
Examples of YAML file
YAML pipelines don’t have a Create work item on failure setting like classic build pipelines. Classic build pipelines are single stage, and Create work item on failure applies to the whole pipeline. YAML pipelines can be multi-stage, and a pipeline level setting may not be appropriate. To implement Create work item on failure in a YAML pipeline, you can use methods such as the Work Items – Create REST API call or the Azure DevOps CLI az boards work-item create command at the desired point in your pipeline.
The following example has two jobs. The first job represents the work of the pipeline, but if it fails, the second job runs, and creates a bug in the same project as the pipeline.
