Managing Build Pipelines

A build pipeline contains the stages that define the build process for successfully compiling, testing, and running software applications before deployment.

A stage is an action in the build pipeline. The DevOps service includes the following pre-defined stages that you can use in a build pipeline:

  • Managed Build: Build and test your software applications.
  • Deliver Artifacts: Store your software applications created from the Managed Build stage in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Artifact Registry or OCI Container Registry repositories.
  • Trigger Deployment: Start a deployment pipeline to deploy the output from the build pipeline.
  • Wait: Pause a specific duration for testing the build pipeline.

You can add multiple stages to a pipeline. Stages can be added in a sequence or in parallel. You can remove any stage from the pipeline. When you do, the stage and its associated resources are deleted.
