GitHub and Azure

The world’s leading developer platform, seamlessly integrated with Azure.

Accelerate software development with Azure integrations

Deliver software faster and more securely by combining the practices and tools that have supported the growth of the largest developer community in the world with seamlessly integrated Azure products and GitHub services.

Code-to-cloud workflow automation with GitHub Actions for Azure

Built-in Microsoft Visual Studio integration for accelerated Developer Velocity

End-to-end application security with GitHub Advanced Security and Defender for DevOps

Native Azure integrations for faster deployment

Automate code-to-cloud workflows

Easily create code-to-cloud workflows in your repository to build, test, package, release, and deploy to Azure. GitHub Actions for Azure provides native support for deployments to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), the Web Apps feature of Azure App Service, Azure SQL Database, Azure Functions, and more.

Plan smarter and track your work

Boost your team's productivity with boards, backlogs, and sprints for even the most complex projects. Simply connect your GitHub repo to Azure Boards and start linking commits and pull requests to work items tracked in Azure Boards, enabling you to develop while planning and tracking work.

Break down silos in your organization

Bring open-source code and components to your enterprise projects more securely. Establish innersource fundamentals with open source best practices and through collaboration with the open source community. Innersourcing helps accelerate enterprise software development and Developer Velocity. Flexibility, security, compliance, and deployment controls make it easy for your team to use GitHub Enterprise on Azure wherever you need it.

Enforce a more secure workplace identity

Provision your existing Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure AD) solution for GitHub group membership to provide a more secure workplace identity. Help your admins and developers focus on application development by reducing administrative time, improving auditability, and increasing user security with Microsoft Entra ID synchronization capabilities.

An Azure Policy being updated and deployed in GitHub

Manage Azure Policy as code

To increase Developer Velocity, shift from managing each policy in the Azure portal manually to a more manageable, collaborative, and repeatable process at enterprise scale. Export Azure policies to a GitHub repository in just a few clicks, then collaborate, track changes using version control, and deploy the policies using custom GitHub workflows.

GitHub extensions in Visual Studio

Reimagine developer productivity

Reduce ramp-up time on Git and be more productive with built-in GitHub extensions for Visual Studio. Create and publish repositories, manage pull requests on GitHub, and review source code right inside Visual Studio.
