Release pipelines

arkiboys 9,686 Reputation points

In the development environment, I create sample pipelines to test, etc.
When I decide to deploy to production using the CI/CD release pipelines, what happens to the sample pipelines in dev? will they get migrated to production as well? if so, what is the best way to prevent these sample pipelines, linked services, etc. to go to prod
Thank you

    Hi @arkiboys ,
    Pre-requisite for deploying ADF pipelines , is ADF should be connected to GIT repository or Azure GIT. While building or developing any pipeline , we use our local branch(feature branch). Once the pipeline is ready to get merged, pull request needs to be created in order to merge it to the main branch(collaboration branch). The moment any new changes in a Pull request is merged to the main branch and we hit Publish, ARM template gets re-generated with the new Json file in the branch called 'adf_publish' .

    During migration when a release is created , all the latest changes from adf_publish will get deployed to higher environment.

    The best practice to avoid the sample pipelines from deploying to higher environment is to let them be in the local branch and not merge it to the main branch in Dev environment until those are tested and ready for deployment.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
