Examine how to design a release strategy, and to build a release management workflow for Azure DevOps solutions in this 18-video course, which helps learners prepare for AZ-400 Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions certification exam. First, you will learn about release approvals, and how to create a strategy for measuring release quality. Next, learn to create release notes in the Release Notes Generator, how to specify deployment targets, and to implement approvals. Learners observe how to integrate Jenkins automation server, and AKS (Azure Kubernetes Service) into pipelines by using Azure Service Fabric. You will learn to deploy applications to Azure Web Apps; to use the Azure Key Vault for storage of sensitive information; how to integrate secrets in Azure key vault into the pipeline; and how to build a CI/CD (continuous integration-continuous delivery) environment. The course then demonstrates how to encapsulate a sequence of predefined tasks into a reusable task, and use variable groups to store across multiple pipelines. Finally, you will learn to use Azure Test.
