Azure Pipelines

Continuously build, test, and deploy to any platform and cloud

Get cloud-hosted pipelines for Linux, macOS, and Windows. Build web, desktop and mobile applications. Deploy to any cloud or on‑premises.

Automate your builds and deployments with Pipelines so you spend less time with the nuts and bolts and more time being creative.

Any language, any platform

Build, test, and deploy Node.js, Python, Java, PHP, Ruby, C/C++, .NET, Android, and iOS apps. Run in parallel on Linux, macOS, and Windows.

Containers and Kubernetes

Easily build and push images to container registries like Docker Hub and Azure Container Registry. Deploy containers to individual hosts or Kubernetes.


Explore and implement a wide range of community-built build, test, and deployment tasks, along with hundreds of extensions from Slack to SonarCloud.

Deploy to any cloud

Implement continuous delivery (CD) of your software to any cloud, including Azure, AWS and GCP. Visualise deployment to any number of interdependent stages.

Free for open source

Ensure fast continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for every open source project. Get 10 free parallel jobs with unlimited build minutes for all open source projects.

Advanced workflows and features

Take advantage of easy build chaining and multi-phased builds. Support for YAML, test integration, release gates, reporting—and more.

GitHub user? You’re covered.

Build, test, and deploy everything you create on GitHub. Get fast, reliable builds on all platforms through deep integration with GitHub pull requests, checks, and statuses.

Build and deploy faster with Pipelines

Linux, macOS, and Windows agents—hosted by Microsoft

Simplify managing hardware and VMs by using Microsoft cloud-hosted agents. Get full CI/CD pipeline support for every major platform and tool.

Powerful workflows with native container support

Get lightning fast builds with parallel jobs and test execution. Use container jobs to create consistent and reliable builds with the exact tools you need. Create new containers with ease and push them to any registry.

Flexible deployments to Kubernetes, serverless, or VMs

Deploy to Kubernetes, VMs, Azure Functions, Azure Web Apps, or any cloud. Use stages, gates, and approvals to create a deployment strategy that’s right for you and ensures quality at every step. Even deploy from other CI systems, like Jenkins.


"Pandas is a community-maintained project, and Azure Pipelines lets me be more efficient at reviewing pull requests and contributions. It automatically tests the pandas code on Windows, Linux and Mac, and I can see results in one place. If the tests fail for a pull request, I can just tell the contributor to "ping me on green"."

Jeff Reback, maintainer of the Pandas project
