Azure Pipeline Part 6 – Task

Hello Everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

Today we are going to discuss smallest unit of execution in an Azure pipeline, i.e., tasks. You can imagine task as pre-configured script that you can reuse any numbers of times in your Azure pipeline. Microsoft Azure provides a set of built-in tasks to perform most common types of activity through your pipeline, or you can create a custom task of your own. Task also supports versioning and you can call a specific version of task in your Azure pipeline.

Next, we are going to create an Azure pipeline that uses some built-in tasks. We will first create some files and directories, then archive those files and directories, then extract the archived files and directories and finally list the files using multiple built-in tasks.
