Azure DevOps – A New Era

Azure DevOps – A New Era

Azure DevOps : A very well know VSTS Visual Studio Team Services has become Azure DevOps with new features , icons ,Repos and Test plans along with plenty of rich feature an excerpt from Microsoft Site as shown below:

The single service that was Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is now becoming a new set of Azure DevOps services. Throughout our documentation and websites, and in the product, you'll start to notice new icons and names for Azure DevOps and each of the services within it:
·         Azure Pipelines to continuously build, test, and deploy to any platform and cloud.
·         Azure Boards for powerful work management.
·         Azure Artifacts for Maven, npm, and NuGet package feeds.
·         Azure Repos for unlimited cloud-hosted private Git repos.
·         Azure Test Plans for planned and exploratory testing.
Now a days I’m exploring Azure Devops and will share enough practical based articles and blogs pertinent to Azure PaaS e.g. Azure Devops and Azure CDN etc.
In this article will share you about the how does it look like and how can you explore this.
Step1. Copy and paste the following url, it will open the screen to ask for your credentials .
The following screen (img1)  will appear if you open it for the first time as depicted below:

You can choose either to go with start free or sign in to Azure Devops ,I have my own account to I’m ready to go. Azure devops provides some out-of-ox feature which you can implement as shown below in screen shot (img2) as well.

You can also visit this link for more in depth details about Azure DevOps.
Step2:  Once you have logged in AzureDevOps site, it should be look like this though I’ve already created few of my projects as shown below in screen shot(img3).



To create a new project you should have new organization

·         You must have an organization created in Azure DevOps. If you don't have one, do that now.
·         As an organization owner, you can create projects. If you're not the owner, then you must be a member of the Project Collection Administrators Group or have your Create new projects permission set to Allow.

Kindly refer an image above and find (+New Organization) button at marked yellow must be at bottom left on screen. As soon as you click on “New Organization” button the following screens will appear . Please accept terms and conditions and proceed further.Img4

Once you are done with creating your organization than you will be eligible to create new project. Refer img6 as shown below:

To achieve this you can also go to home page and click on the create project button at top right corner of the screen, as soon as you click on that it appears with the following screen which you have to fill to proceed further. Refer img 7.

Once you are done with this , you are good to go and will see the detailed information on the screen. Reference AzureDevOps
Select one of the following tasks to get started:
·         Invite to begin adding others to your project. Note, if this is your first project, then you must first invite users to your organization.
·         Boards to begin adding work items.
·         Repos to open Repos>Files page where you can clone or import a repository, or initialize a README file for your project summary page.
·         Pipelines to start defining a pipeline.
·         Test Plans to start defining test plans and test suites.
·         Manage your services to disable the visibility of one or more services.

After this you can have a glimpse of each section to get familiar with this. In the next article I will be exchanging my learning about to create Build Pipeline for Azure CDN in AzureDevOps and will follow with Release pipeline and other pertinent stuff.
