Join Paul Hacker for an in-depth discussion in this video Run the CI build, part of Continuous Delivery with Azure DevOps.
- [Instructor] Okay, now that we have reviewed our CI pipeline build, I want to go and actually kick off a build to show you that the integration works, and then, show you the results of that particular build. So, how I'm going to do that is rather than going into Visual Studio and opening up and going through that process, I'm going to just go into the repo and in my project, I'm going to navigate down to some of the views that I have in my project, go to the home folder, go to the index view, and you can see we have a ViewBag.Title - Home Page LinkedIn.
We're just going to add Demo to that, oop, got to click Edit first, and you can do some lightweight in-browser editing this way. I'll do a Commit, updating the index, branch name, master, I'm not linking it to any work items at this time. Commit it. If I go back to my pipelines now, I should see my build running, which I do, if I click on the link, you can see that it's using the LinkedInPool, the LinkedInAgent and it's initialized already.
It's doing the check out, I'm doing a nuGet restore immediately, first time takes the longest because it has to download all the artifacts to the build server. If you choose to set the clean to false on the directory, what will happen is, it will actually go through and their subsequent builds will only download the files that have changed. So, by leaving the clean to false, it doesn't empty out the directory and make me re-download all the files all over again. There's times when you may want to, there's times when you may not want to.
I leave it as false, and I go ahead and just bring down what's changed, and you can see this build ran pretty quick, so it's done, ran about 25 seconds. So, that was a pretty quick build, and we'll go back and look at the details of it here in the next video.
