Improvements/Additions:

Project:

  • Added Application Insights resource to the Terraform code to enable Continous Monitoring for the project.

Azure DevOps Pipelines:

Continous Integration

  • Converted GUI based Build Pipeline to YAML based build pipeline so it can be maintained with the project repository.
  • Build triggers configured to target push and Pull Request CI builds in order to use as status checks for safe contribution, adhering to Git flow.

Continous Deployment

  • Enabled Continous Deployment for both Pull Request and Push(to master and release branches) to Dev environment.
    • This environment and Release stage can later be used to run integration tests before promoting deployment to higher stages.
  • Added Continous Monitoring to the App Service via Application Insights with Release Pipeline task
  • Modified Release Pipeline to have Dev, Test, Staging & Production to promote DevOps practices.
    • Have stage specific variables to use same code with various configurations.
    • Management of Terraform state file via appending statefile name with stage name in pipeline.

Code Management / Github

  • Enabled master branch protection in GitHub repository with status checks requirement for safe contribution.
