Azure DevOps

In addition to our out-of-the-box integration with GitHub , Spacelift supports using Azure DevOps as the source of code for your stacks and modules.

Setting up the integration

In order to set up the integration from the Spacelift side, please navigate to the VCS providers section of the admin Settings page, find the Azure DevOps integration and click the Set up button:

VCS providers page

This should open a form like this one:

Azure DevOps setup form

Now you'll have to fill in the Organization URL, which is the main URL of your Azure DevOps organization.

Azure DevOps main organization page

The Azure DevOps Organization URL usually has the following format:

  • https://dev.azure.com/{my-organization-name}

Depending on when your Azure DevOps organization was created, it may use a different format, for example:

  • https://{my-organization-name}.visualstudio.com

You can find out more about Azure DevOps URLs here.

In order to get the Personal access token you'll need to:

1. Go to User settings -> Personal access tokens (in a top right section of the Azure DevOps page)

Personal access tokens menu in Azure DevOps

2. On the Personal Access Tokens page click + New Token

3. Create a new personal access token. There, you will need to set the name of your token, expiration and scope. For Spacelift give it Code (Source code, repositories, pull requests and notifications) Read & write access.

After doing all this you should have all fields filled in.

Filled in Azure DevOps integration form

If all the data is correct, after saving you should see two notifications in the bottom right part of Spacelift: New integration was created; and Connecting to Azure DevOps succeeded. You can find your webhook endpoint and webhook password under the Azure DevOps VCS integration section:

Configured Azure DevOps integration

For each Azure DevOps project you want to use with Spacelift, you now have to go into its Project settings -> Service hooks -> Create subscription. Within the services list choose Webhook and click Next.

Creating a Webhook integration in Azure DevOps

We will need to create two integrations: Code pushed and Pull request created. Let's first create Code pushed integration.

Once on the Trigger page of New Service Hooks Subscription window, select Code pushed in the Trigger on this type of event dropdown and click Next.

After clicking Next you should see the Action page. Under the Settings section fill in the Spacelift Webhook endpoint URL. Leave Basic authentication username empty and put the Webhook password under Basic authentication password and click Finish.

Once done you should see the list of configured Service Hooks. Repeat the same process for the Pull request created trigger event. Afterwards you should see the configured webhooks on the Service Hooks settings page.

If you no-longer need the integration, you can remove it via the Unlink button on the VCS settings page.
