Current behavior:

Supports "out of the box" parallelization for most popular CI environments.

Desired behavior:

Support Azure Devops

Cf. https://docs.cypress.io/guides/guides/parallelization.html#Linking-CI-machines-for-parallelization-or-grouping

https://github.com/cypress-io/cypress/blob/master/packages/server/lib/util/ci_provider.js

We need Azure Devops to be supported here.

Note: Azure Devops is the new name for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) which was previously called Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Services. There has been some work done to support this throughout Cypress, but as far as I can tell, nothing in the parallelization links listed above.

Might be helpful: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/pipelines/process/phases?view=azure-devops&tabs=designer#multi-configuration

@markgoho can I ask what is NOT working for you? We are extracting the variables from team foundation variables, so the dashboard should be able to show the commit information.

  • is the parallelization not using a variable to tie different machines running in parallel together? Which variable would you use to link runs? You can try doing it yourself with --ci-build-id

The reason we looked at Azure Devops and only created a basic example is that Azure DevOps does NOT provide caching of installed dependencies, making npm install command run from zero on each build, which is pretty painful.

hey @bahmutov thanks for the quick response!

The dashboard is reading the e2e tests just fine. I'm primarily interested in seeing parallelization supported natively like the 10 or so other CI environments.

Dependency re-installs are a little painful (2.5 min or so on their hosted ubuntu agent) but does that have an impact on running the spec files in parallel on your system?

ok, for Azure Devops, the builds are not linked by an environment right away? which variable would you pass with --ci-build-id to link them like shown here https://on.cypress.io/parallelization?

The dependencies install / lack of Docker support is painful but does not affect the test run itself. But especially for parallel mode, if you spend 3 minutes to install NPM dependencies to spend 30 seconds to run tests ... that is super painful, especially compared to other CIs

We'd probably pass the build number, which is like 20190306.5

I'm not 100% how the parallelization is determined, but let's say I had 10 spec files and 5 machines available. Your service spins up those other machines, installs dependencies and runs, say, 2 spec files per machine.

So the question is: do the parallelized tests (with the extra dependency installation) take less time to run than running them in sequence but with just 1 dependency installation?

Yeah, wtf Azure Devops? I know they have a proposal for caching but it's probably weeks to months away. I think this is probably all academic until they get their caching strategy in place. For now it's kind of pointless to do parallelization with Azure.

I have finally created a nice parallel example on Azure CI pipelines, here is the config file https://github.com/cypress-io/cypress-example-kitchensink/blob/master/azure-ci.yml

Builds https://cypress-io.visualstudio.com/cypress-example-kitchensink/_build/results

To parallelize I have used the variable BUILD_BUILDNUMBER which is the same among all parallel tasks in a job. The other variables relevant are starting with AGENT, BUILD and SYSTEM

  1. How do we decide if this is Azure CI vs Team Foundation?
  2. use BUILD_BUILDNUMBER as CI build id
  3. we need a new profile for Azure CI so we do not display "Team Foundation" in the dashboard

Currently in https://dashboard.cypress.io/#/projects/4b7344/runs/5210/specs it is
