Power Platform Pipeline is the In-Product experience that enables the makers to easily deploy solutions from Development to QA and Production environment . You

The Power Platform Pipeline facilitates deploying solutions from a Development environment to QA and Production environment. You need to install this Pipeline from App Source into a Host environment and configure your Development and Target environments. The Deployment Pipeline Configuration Model Driven App is provided with the “App Deployment Model App” Solution. However, all your environments must be Managed To use the Power Platform Pipelines.

There are resources to learn more about Power Platform Pipeline installation and setup, such as setting up pipelines in Power Platform. Also, you can extend the Power Platform Pipelines to perform various operations during different stages of Deployment using Power Automate Flows.

In the context of Azure DevOps, you can export the Power Platform solution into an Azure DevOps repository by calling an Azure DevOps Pipeline from Power Automate upon completion of deployment from Development to QA Environment.

  • Step 1: Enable pre-deployment step required within deployment stage
  • Step 2: Create the Azure DevOps export pipeline

For example, the solution named ContosoDemo can be deployed within an Azure DevOps Organization,we create a project named ContosoDemo, and create a pipeline named Export Solution which will export the solution and keep it unpacked in the repository.
