I am planning to deploy SPFx project to Azure DevOps.

Please clarify my below 5 questions:

  1. In Azure DevOps DevOps Do I need to deploy only app cataog at site collection level or tenant level? I see in shraepoint admin centre by default catalog site is there, do I need to enter these in below variables as it is? Please give me one example on how to use variable for catalog site here while declaring app catalog site in the release pipeline? Please find attached screenshot called catalogsite 199997-catalogsite.png I am confused here.

suppose I have 2 app catalog site collection
https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/appcatalog ( tenant level)
https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/marketing ( site collection level)

here for site collection I have created site collection with name called "marketing" with team site template and added as catalog site using below command
Add-PnPSiteCollectionAppCatalog -site https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/marketing

However I don't see marketing site look & feel as not like tenant level app catalog site , why it is so is there any wrong I have done?

  1. If I want to create app catalog site at site collection is there any specific template do I need to follow?
  2. How do I make sure site collection level app catalog is available as expected with out any issues? Please provide me clear steps here.
  3. Do I need to be tenant admin to deploy to site collection level catalog also in DevOps?

    Hi @sns ,

    Based on my research, There is an example about "Implementing a CI/CD Pipeline for your SPFx projects in Azure DevOps" in the article ,you can refer to it.

    Please try adding "" to the command, like this: Add-PnPSiteCollectionAppCatalog -Site "https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/FinanceTeamsite"

    And here is a document about how to create app catalog site collection ,you can follow the steps in the document to create app catalog.
