The Deployment Centre setting for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) will be retired on 31 March 2023 – Use Automated Deployments to create pipelines

Published date: 23 September, 2022

On 31 March 2023, the Deployment Centre setting for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) will be retired. Please start using Automated Deployments to create pipelines by 31 March 2023.  

Note that all existing pipelines created will still be available and functional in either the GitHub Actions portal or the Azure DevOps portal. Only the experience of creating and viewing the pipeline from the Deployment Centre in Azure portal will be unavailable after 31 March 2023. 

We encourage you to make the switch sooner to familiarise yourself with Automated Deployments in the Azure portal and its extensive capabilities. 

From now until 31 March 2023, you can continue to create and view pipelines from the Deployment Centre setting of an AKS resource in Azure portal. After 31 March 2023, this setting will no longer be available.
