Create a unified pipeline to deploy your entire environment. You'll add a build stage to your pipeline, and use pipeline artifacts and Bicep outputs to publish applications, databases, and blobs.
After completing this module, you'll be able to:
- Deploy Azure infrastructure, applications, database scripts, and storage blobs from a single pipeline
- Use pipeline scripts and pipeline tasks to perform deployment steps
- Use pipeline artifacts to publish compiled files for your deployment pipeline stages to use
