Validating web site building directory
They should be versioned, source controlled and also tested and validated.
By doing this, you can be confident that your Infrastructure code is up to the highest quality and also will not give you problems at deployment time.
Azure Resource Manager Templates is great way of including Infrastructure as Code in to your development practices.
ARM Templates can be used to manage your resources on Azure and in some cases, manage configuration as well.
For me it’s mainly because the amount of details I get in the output when I run in to issues.
In my view the Azure Resource Group Deployment task provides very little details about the syntax issues compared to JSONLint.
I have an ARM Template that I need to validate and to do that, have created a build definition on Visual Studio Team Services, I’ll take you through the steps involved in validating the ARM template. JSONLint is a npm package we can use to validate the json syntax.This ensures that we always merge tested infrastructure code in to our main branches and we minimize deployment issue caused by syntax and other validation error that can be introduced during the development process.In this article we discussed about why we should validate our Infrastructure code and how we can validate our Azure Resource Manager templates on Visual Studio Team Services.In the projects I am working on we heavily use ARM templates to automated and manage infrastructure (sometimes configuration as well) so it’s easier for us to do repeatable deployments safely.And we follow the practice of using pull requests to merge code in to our main branches and use Pull Requests to peer review our code changes.
