Business value

Pipelines in Power Platform simplify application lifecycle management (ALM) with in-product ALM automation accessible to all makers, admins, and professional developers. Pipelines significantly reduce the barriers around adopting healthy, enterprise-grade ALM and have many new features and improvements with the general availability release.

Feature details

Pipelines provide more control and better visibility with less effort. Building on the public preview release, the general availability release of pipelines will offer many critical new capabilities with more streamlined experiences. These capabilities include:

  • Set up automated deployment pipelines with less friction.
  • Add low-code logic and approvals to your deployment process with cloud flows or extend pipelines using plug-ins.
  • Schedule deployments for a later date and time.
  • Deploy using service principals so that citizen developers don't require elevated permissions within production environments.
  • Custom-tailor deployment processes to meet the needs of your organization.
  • Developers can do more with additional command line capabilities and build task support.
  • Admins have better visibility and auditing capabilities within the streamlined management experience.
  • More control over how solutions are managed across various connected environments.
