Today, we are going to see how to configure Azure DevOps CI/CD and setup Azure Pipeline using Visual Studio.
We won't be spending time on what Azure DevOps is; we are directly moving to CI/CD. Once we set up the Azure pipeline then on each check-in it will build the application and deploy the changes on App Service.

In this article, we will see how to configure the CI/CD for a single project in one solution. In the next article, we will see how to configure the CI/CD for multiple projects in one solution.:
For configuring the Azure DevOps CI/CD, you need the following tools.
- An Azure DevOps account
- Azure Portal Account
- Visual Studio 2012 or higher (in my example, I am using VS 2019)
We will see how to configure CI/CD and setup Azure Pipeline using Azure DevOps.
Create a new project by using the Azure DevOps account. I am using Team Foundation version control, but you can use Git, too.
Configure the newly-created project in Visual Studio source control on your local system.
Create a new project with a solution in Visual Studio and add this in the DevOps Source Control then check-in the changes.
Setup Azure Pipelines under the publish settings of your solution.
Wait for a few minutes and then go to the pipelines under Azure DevOps. You will see a new Pipeline created and the build of the project has started.
Check the Deployment Center on the Azure portal for your App Service, for which you have set up the Azure Pipeline in step 4.
If there is no error in the build, then after some time your build will be finished. In my example, it took about a minute and a half.
As the build succeeds, the new release will be created and start pushing the release changes on app service.
Check the app by using the URL and you will see the application has deployed.
If you change anything in the application, check the changes and see that Azure DevOps will build the solution and release the changes.
We can see all releases under the Deployment Center on Azure Portal.
