If Azure’s code editor does not meet your development needs, you can set up continuous integration using your favorite IDE. Follow these easy steps to get started.
- Create an empty repository in your favorite source control system
- Download the bot code
- Choose the deployment source and connect your repository
If, after setting up continuous integration, you need to disconnect your deployment source from your bot, see Disconnecting your deployment source.
Create an empty repository in your favorite source control system
The first step is to create an empty repository. At the time of this writing, Azure supports the following source control systems:
Download the bot code
Download the bot code zip file from the Settings tab of your Azure bot.
Unzip the bot code file to the local folder where you are planning to sync your deployment source.
Choose the deployment source and connect your repository
- Click the Settings tab within your Azure bot, and expand the Continuous integration section.
Click Set up integration source.
Click Setup, select your deployment source, and follow the steps to connect it. Make sure you select the repository type that you created in step 1.
Disconnecting your deployment source
If for any reason you need to disconnect your deployment source from your bot, simply open the Settings tab, expand the Continuous integration section, click Set up integration source, and finally click Disconnect in the resulting blade.
