Azure Deployment Environments is now available for all developers 

Listen to this story

Last year at Microsoft Build, an annual conference event, Azure Deployment Environments was released, a service that  enables developers to quickly spin up app infrastructure with project-based templates. After a year of working with over 30 organisations from industries like financial services, retail,  automotive they’ve announced the addition of several new features and capabilities. Sagar Lankala, the Senior Product Manager, announced the new features at Build, Microsoft’s annual conference.

What’s new?

Already in public preview, developers can deploy new environments through the terminal in their code  editor or as part of a GitOps workflow. Now in general availability, developers can view, deploy, and  manage their environments all from a custom developer portal—that also houses cloud-based  workstations available through Microsoft Dev Box. 

They also announced support for Terraform infrastructure-as-code files in Azure Deployment  Environments —customers can sign up for early access today. The service already supports Azure  Resource Manager (ARM) templates; adding Terraform support means that customers who use  Terraform will be able to directly import their existing templates into Azure Deployment Environments.  Support for other infrastructure-as-code formats—including Pulumi and Ansible—is on the backlog. 

To enable a seamless developer experience across products, we’re also working on an integration  between Azure Deployment Environments and the Azure Developer CLI (azd). With this integration,  enterprise developers will be able to leverage azd to provision app infrastructure using Azure  Deployment Environments and, easily deploy app code onto the provisioned infrastructure.
