steps.download definition

  artifact: string # Artifact name.. 
  patterns: string # Pattern to download files from artifact. 
  condition: string # Evaluate this condition expression to determine whether to run this task. 
  continueOnError: boolean # Continue running even on failure?.  (false,n,no,off,on,true,y,yes)
  displayName: string # Human-readable name for the task. 
  enabled: boolean # Run this task when the job runs?.  (false,n,no,off,on,true,y,yes)
  env:  # Variables to map into the process's environment
    string: string # Name/value pairs.
  name: string # ID of the step.  ([-_A-Za-z0-9]*)
  timeoutInMinutes: string # Time to wait for this task to complete before the server kills it.

Remarks

The download keyword is a shortcut for the Download Pipeline Artifacts task.

Artifact download location

Artifacts from the current pipeline are downloaded to $(**Pipeline.Workspace**)/<artifact name>.

Artifacts from the associated pipeline resource are downloaded to $(**Pipeline.Workspace**)/\<pipeline resource identifier\>/<artifact name>.

Automatic download in deployment jobs

All available artifacts from the current pipeline and from the associated pipeline resources are automatically downloaded in deployment jobs and made available for your deployment.

To prevent downloads, specify download: none.

Examples

steps:
- download: current  # refers to artifacts published by current pipeline
  artifact: WebApp
  patterns: '**/.js'
  displayName: Download artifact WebApp
- download: MyAppA   # downloads artifacts available as part of the pipeline resource specified as MyAppA
