Deploy apps to Azure Government Cloud
VSTS | TFS 2017 | TFS 2018
Azure Government Clouds provide private and semi-isolated locations for specific Government or other services, separate from the normal Azure services. Highest levels of privacy have been adopted for these clouds, including restricted data access policies.
Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is not available in Azure Government Clouds, so there are some special considerations when you want to deploy apps to Government Clouds because artifact storage, build, and deployment orchestration must execute outside the Government Cloud.
To enable connection to an Azure Government Cloud, you specify it as the Environment parameter when you create an Azure Resource Manager service endpoint. You must use the full version of the endpoint dialog to manually define the connection. Before you configure a service endpoint, you should also ensure you meet all relevant compliance requirements for your application.
You can then use the service endpoint in your build and release definition tasks.
