GitHub and Azure
The world’s leading developer platform, seamlessly integrated with Azure
Accelerate software development with Azure integrations
End-to-end application security with GitHub Advanced Security and Defender for DevOps
Use your GitHub account to sign in to Azure
Simplify deployment from your repository with seamless access to the Azure portal and Azure DevOps using your GitHub account credentials.
Automate code-to-cloud workflows
Easily create code-to-cloud workflows in your repository to build, test, package, release, and deploy to Azure. GitHub Actions for Azure provides native support for deployments to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), the Web Apps feature of Azure App Service, Azure SQL Database, Azure Functions, and more.
Plan smarter and track your work
Boost your team's productivity with boards, backlogs, and sprints for even the most complex projects. Simply connect your GitHub repo to Azure Boards and start linking commits and pull requests to work items tracked in Azure Boards, enabling you to develop while planning and tracking work.
Break down silos in your organization
Bring open-source code and components to your enterprise projects more securely. Establish innersource fundamentals with open source best practices and through collaboration with the open source community. Innersourcing helps accelerate enterprise software development and Developer Velocity. Flexibility, security, compliance, and deployment controls make it easy for your team to use GitHub Enterprise on Azure wherever you need it.
Enforce a more secure workplace identity
Provision your existing Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) solution for GitHub group membership to provide a more secure workplace identity. Help your admins and developers focus on application development by reducing administrative time, improving auditability, and increasing user security with Azure AD synchronization capabilities.
Manage Azure Policy as code
To increase Developer Velocity, shift from managing each policy in the Azure portal manually to a more manageable, collaborative, and repeatable process at enterprise scale. Export Azure policies to a GitHub repository in just a few clicks, then collaborate, track changes using version control, and deploy the policies using custom GitHub workflows.
Reimagine developer productivity
Reduce ramp-up time on Git and be more productive with built-in GitHub extensions for Visual Studio. Create and publish repositories, manage pull requests on GitHub, and review source code right inside Visual Studio.
Identify, remediate, and prevent vulnerabilities
- Integrate security into the developer workflow using code, secret, and dependency scanning with GitHub Advanced Security.
- Give security teams full insight into the DevOps inventory across multi-pipeline environments in a central console with Microsoft Defender for DevOps.
- Use code-to-cloud contextual insight to prioritize remediation of critical issues in code and assign ownership to developers in their familiar environment.
Get started with an Azure free account
Start free. Get $200 credit to use within 30 days. While you have your credit, get free amounts of many of our most popular services, plus free amounts of 40+ other services that are always free.
