Getting CI to work

Unfortunately, that yaml does not fully specify the build process. There remain settings which are uncontrollable from the pipeline yaml. An export button exists on the azure website, but it is greyed out and unclickable.


Despite what the documentation says, it doesn't seem like Azure Pipelines automatically trigger builds on branches or pull requests. To get around this, trigger and pr sections were added to azure-pipelines.yml. However, pr builds are still not working correctly.

Even with these edits, ull requests from forks are not automatically enabled, and this must be enabled through the GUI. As of writing, you can do this by going to pipelines page, clicking "Edit" -> three veritcal dots -> "Triggers" -> "Pull request validation" -> "Build pull requests from forks of this repository".

It is impossible to schedule builds in the YAML, so that must also be done through the GUI.

GitHub has old pipeline names

If you update the name of the CI build pipeline, GitHub may continue to expect the old name. To fix this, go to the repo settings page on GitHub -> branches -> "edit" next to the branch of your choice -> check/uncheck the desired build names.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
