Build and test Go projects
Azure DevOps Services
Use a pipeline to automatically build and test your Go projects.
Create your first pipeline
New to Azure Pipelines? If so, then we recommend you try this section before moving on to other sections.
Fork the following repo at GitHub:
Sign in to Azure Pipelines
Sign-in to Azure Pipelines. After you sign in, your browser goes to
https://dev.azure.com/my-organization-name and displays your Azure DevOps dashboard.
Within your selected organization, create a project. If you don't have any projects in your organization, you see a Create a project to get started screen. Otherwise, select the New Project button in the upper-right corner of the dashboard.
Create the pipeline
Sign-in to your Azure DevOps organization and go to your project.
Go to Pipelines, and then select New pipeline.
Do the steps of the wizard by first selecting GitHub as the location of your source code.
You might be redirected to GitHub to sign in. If so, enter your GitHub credentials.
When you see the list of repositories, select your repository.
You might be redirected to GitHub to install the Azure Pipelines app. If so, select Approve & install.
When the Configure tab appears, select Go. Your new pipeline appears, with the
azure-pipelines.yml YAML file ready to be configured. See the following sections to learn some of the more common ways to customize your pipeline.
You can use Azure Pipelines to build your Go projects without setting up any infrastructure of your own. You can use Linux, macOS, or Windows agents to run your builds.
Update the following snippet in your
azure-pipelines.yml file to select the appropriate image.
pool: vmImage: 'ubuntu-latest'
Set up Go
Starting with Go 1.11, you no longer need to define a
$GOPATH environment, set up a workspace layout, or use the
dep module. Dependency management is now built in.
This YAML implements the
go get command to download Go packages and their dependencies. It then uses
go build to generate the content that is published with

go build to build your Go project. Add the following snippet to your

go test to test your go module and its subdirectories (
./...). Add the following snippet to your
- task: Go@0 inputs: command: 'test' arguments: '-v' workingDirectory: '$(System.DefaultWorkingDirectory)'
When you're ready, Commit a new azure-pipelines.yml file to your repository and update the commit message. Select Save and run.
If you want to watch your pipeline in action, select the build in the Jobs option on your Azure Pipelines dashboard.
Because your code appeared to be a good match for the Go template, we automatically created your pipeline.
You now have a working YAML pipeline (
azure-pipelines.yml) in your repository that's ready for you to customize!
When you're ready to make changes to your pipeline, select it in the Pipelines page, and then Edit the
