General availability: Azure DevOps 2023 Q1

Published date: 12 April, 2023

This quarter we continued our investments in security. In Azure Pipelines, we improve the security of resources that are critical to build and deploy your applications. Now the resource-type administrator role is required when opening access to a resource to all pipelines. In addition, the Grant access permission to all pipelines option is disabled when creating a service connection, and you don't have sufficient rights. Moreover, we've improved security when creating GitHub Enterprise Server-hosted Pipelines. When you create your first GitHub Enterprise Server (GHES) hosted pipeline, you will need to create a GHES service connection. Previously, you had only one option for the authentication mechanism: to use a Personal access token. This promoted creating less secure service connections.

In addition to security investments, we delivered new features across our multiple services. Some of these features include:
