Deployments to Azure can be done using the Azure CLI directly on a CloudBees CodeShip Basic build machine similar to how you might use the CLI locally.
You will need to install the CLI, configure your authentication with environment variables and then define the CLI commands you want to run as a custom-script deployment pipeline.
The Azure CLI does not come pre-installed on CloudBees CodeShip Basic build machines.
AZ_REPO=$(lsb_release -cs) echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ $AZ_REPO main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list curl -L https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install azure-cli
The easiest way to keep the authentication secure is to use environment variables to store the username and password, and to pass those to your Azure login commands.
You will need to create a new custom-script deployment pipeline to run the Azure CLI commands you need for your deployment.
These commands will run every time the branch the deployment pipeline is associated with is updated. They are not CodeShip specific and will be standard Azure CLI input.
