Azure DevOps – Angular 5 with .Net WebApi

This article shows how to set up AzureDevOps CI/CD pipelines to be set for a full stack application. Here I use a multilayered solution set up which show the tasks based on users. Below is the technology stack which is used.

  • Frontend UI – Angular 5
  • Middleware APIs- ASP.NET WebAPI
  • RDBMS – SQL Server 2012
  • Dependency Injection – Unity
  • ORM – EntityFramework
  • Framework – .NET Core

I have code hosted on github as public repo.

Our projects in the solution would look like below:-

First, create an AzureDevOps account by going to azure web portal.

As for pricing, Azure DevOps is free for open source projects and small projects (up to five users).

I have created Tracker as a private project, which I will be using for my Azure CI/CD pipeline.

Once you create a project there will be an option on the left-hand side, which gives us a submenu to show files and its metadata.

After I click files, I would not see any files. Since I am using git version control and the source is hosted on GitHub. I will fire these two commands in the command prompt to push my latest changes.

git remote add origin
git push -u origin --all

Now the code is pushed and the next step is to create AzureDevOps pipeline, on the left-hand side, there is an option. We would need to create Build and Release pipelines separately.

Again goto build option, we would see an option, where we need to create a build agent with multiple configurations.

  • Install node package manager,
  • Install angular cli
  • Build packages for angular,
  • Nuget restore to install packages for WebApi’s solution.
  • run unit tests,
  • And finally, publish artefacts.

Once we are set with these build pipelines, we would need to proceed for Release Pipeline.

In order to

In order to make it simple, I would use the staging environment. In real-world scenarios, we can have dev, stage and prod separately.

In the image below, we select the build source type, which is our build pipeline, and we would like to
