Sections

Integrate your source control system with Continuous Delivery for Puppet Enterprise (PE) by following the appropriate set of instructions on this page.

Integrate with Azure DevOps

Continuous Delivery for PE works with your existing source control system to track changes to your Puppet code and manage code deployments to your nodes. Create an Azure DevOps OAuth application in order to integrate your Azure DevOps instance with Continuous Delivery for PE and start using these tools.

Before you begin
An administrator on your team must create an Azure DevOps OAuth application for Continuous Delivery for PE.
  1. Sign into Continuous Delivery for PE as the root user.

  2. Click Settings, then click Integrations.

    Tip: The authorization callback URL required to create your OAuth app is shown in the root console.
  3. Go to https://app.vsaex.visualstudio.com/app/register. Enter your company name.

  4. In the Application Information section, enter a name for your OAuth application, such as CD for PE.

  5. In the Application website field, enter the base URL for your Continuous Delivery for PE instance.

  6. In the Authorization callback URL field, enter the authorization callback URL printed in the root console.

  7. In the Authorized scopes section, select Code (read and write).

  8. Click Create Application. Your new application is created, and a new page showing the application's settings is displayed.
    Important: Leave this page open. You'll need the application settings information in the next step.
  9. Return to the Continuous Delivery for PE root console. On the Integrations page, enter the application ID and client secret for your Azure DevOps OAuth application and click Add.

Once an Azure DevOps OAuth application is established for your organization, each workspace must be authenticated with the application in order to integrate the Continuous Delivery for PE instance with Azure DevOps. This process involves granting code read and write permissions and adding a public SSH key, which enables cloning of modules and control repos during automated tasks.
Important: If your organization uses Azure DevOps branch permissions to limit user access to Git branches, review the permissions granted to Continuous Delivery for PE users and ensure that these users can force push to the relevant control repos and module repos.
Important: Azure DevOps only supports cloning over SSH. HTTP(S) cloning is not supported. To use Azure DevOps, SSL must be enabled on Continuous Delivery for PE.
  1. In the Continuous Delivery for PE web UI, click Settings.
  2. Click Source control, then click Azure DevOps.
  3. Click Add credentials to give Continuous Delivery for PE code read and write permissions for your Azure DevOps account. You are directed to a Microsoft page.
