ADF repository

arkiboys 8,326 Reputation points

At present, there is a Repository called projectName in DevOps.
This repo contains existing codes, such as c#, python, etc.
Now I have created ADF with a few pipelines. This ADF is part of projectName.
Is it best to create a separate repository just for ADF?
Is it best to create a folder in the existing projectName repo and name the folder as ADF and then place all ADF objects in ADF folder inside the projectName where other codes are?

Thank you

    Hello @arkiboys

    Even I see in many cases a separate repository is created for ADF, I think this is for a better collaboration if multiple teams are working on different Azure components

    If in your case the above condition applies, then you can create a separate ADF repository

    If the team is small and less collaboration is needed, like in one of the projects I did, we extracted the ARM Template from ADF and checked-in to a folder named ADF in a single repository where other Azure components are checked-in

    In this case, we were independent to keep few items till development environment only, when we export the ARM template we manually remove the items we don't want to deploy, I know this is tedious but we felt this a better approach than publishing all dev items into repository
