In the previous section, you created your first build pipeline to create your artifact. Now is the time to create your first release pipeline in order to deploy an artifact to an environment (for example, Azure).
A release pipeline starts from one or more artifacts and defines one or more stages to deploy them:
The Artifacts box contains all the artifacts that the release pipeline uses. For each artifact, you can configure the trigger (the continuous deployment trigger and pull request trigger) that activates the release. You can also configure schedules for the release (for example, to implement a nightly release).
When a trigger is fired, Azure DevOps creates a new release that is simply a potential release for one of the stages in the pipeline. Then, this new release can run the deployment on one or more stages, depending on the pre-deployment...
