Benefits of the Apwide Golive Azure DevOps Marketplace Extension
With the Apwide Golive and Azure extension, you can leverage the robust capabilities of Azure DevOps and combine them with the comprehensive test environment management features of Apwide Golive for Jira.
This integration enables you to easily connect your Azure DevOps projects with Apwide Golive. Deployments and relevant environment information required by testers, release managers,... and other teams, are automatically pushed to Apwide Golive from your Azure DevOps pipelines.
Connect your Azure Project with Golive
Go to your Project Settings/Service Connections to connect to different instances of Golive:
Follow instructions to properly configure and verify your connection parameters:
Add custom Golive tasks to your pipelines
You can configure new tasks to your pipelines with the graphical assistant:
The graphical assistant can also be used in “Release” pipelines:
Apwide Golive Environment pipeline task
Use this task when your need to update deployment or to push any other information of your environments to Golive and Jira.
This is your “swiss knife” task to track your environments managed in Azure DevOps.
Configure a new task using the graphical assistant
Select the connection and specify the target Golive environment
After having selected the Servie Connection to connect with your Golive server, you have to identify the environment you want to update in Golive.
Automatically create target environment (if missing in Golive)
Select “auto create” option if you want to automatically create the environment based on the provided names if it does not exist yet in Golive:
Push information to an existing target environment
In order, to use an existing environment as target, simply let the “Environment Name” parameter empty and search for the Golive environment in the picker list:
Push deployment information
If your pipeline is performing deployments, you can send the information of the performed deployment to Golive. All deployment information to push to Golive are set in the “Update Deployment” section:

Update Environment url and attributes
You can update and share other useful environment information managed by Azure DevOps pipelines in the “Update Environment” section.
