    @Manoj Kumar - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    It seems like the error message is related to a lock on the scope. This error can occur when a resource is locked by another operation. You need to remove the lock and try again.

    To remove the lock, you can follow these steps:

    1. Go to the Azure portal and navigate to the resource group that contains the locked resource.
    2. Click on the locked resource to open its details page.
    3. Click on the "Locks" option in the left-hand menu.
    4. Select the lock that is causing the issue and click on the "Delete" button.
    5. Confirm the deletion of the lock.

    After removing the lock, you can try to deploy ADF using CICD again. If you still face the same issue, please provide more information about the error message or any other error messages that you receive.
