Publish Pipeline Artifacts
Azure Artifacts enable developers to store and manage their packages and control who they want to share it with. Pipeline Artifacts are generally generated after you build your application. The output can then deployed or consumed by another job in your pipeline.
Publish Artifacts is not supported in release pipelines. It is only supported in build pipelines, yaml pipelines, and multi-stage pipelines.
You can publish your Artifacts at any stage of your pipeline using YAML or the classic editor. If you want to publish your Artifacts manually, you can use the Azure CLI to run the
az pipelines runs artifact command. You will not be billed for storing your Pipeline Artifacts or Pipeline caching.
steps: - task: PublishPipelineArtifact@1 inputs: targetPath: '$(Pipeline.Workspace)' artifactType: 'pipeline' artifactName: 'drop'
- targetPath: Path to the folder or file you want to publish. (Required)
- artifactType: Artifacts publish location. (Required). Options: pipeline, filepath. Default value: pipeline.

PublishBuildArtifacts@1 task is deprecated, we recommend that you use the
PublishPipelineArtifact@1 task for faster performance.
