Azure DevOps Server: Is there a built-in mechanism to authenticate pipelines at external services?

Markus Bauer 25 Reputation points


I was wondering if AzureDevOps pipelines have a built-in feature that allows themselves to be authenticated by 3rd parties.

E.g. I have a pipeline that I want to access a 3rd party service to retrieve some data, now at that 3rd party service I want to authenticate that the request came from an AzureDevOps pipeline.

Gitlab offers a similar feature to this, by way of providing a JWT Token for each pipeline that includes a bunch of information and that can be verified at a JWKS endpoint provided by the Gitlab server, making it possible to have CI pipelines essentially authenticate via OIDC/JWT auth.

Is there something similar in AzureDevOps pipelines?
