If I do not have the azure account, is there a way to see the visuals of the pipeline if I only have received the .json file of it?

    Hi @arkiboys . The visual is created by the authoring tool in the browser. As far as I am aware, there is not a Microsoft-supported offline version to make the visual.

    I specified Microsoft-supported because theoretically, you could make your own. All the information needed to structure the picture is in the JSON. Graphical assets (image for each activity type) are not part of the pipeline JSON. In each activity object, the dependsOn property gives the ancestor activities, and the name and type properties are self-descriptive. This allows the order and structure to be inferred. I'm tempted to say a non-interactive version would be 2 weeks work of Javascript.

    If you choose to try an Azure Guest account, be careful with the permissions / roles.
