Learn Live: Control and govern your Azure environment...

6:00 PM

Plan how you'll harden and help secure your Azure environment, along with the controls to apply to your configuration changes and deployments. Require your infrastructure be defined as code, and protect your environment against manual changes. In this episode, you will: Plan an Azure deployment strategy for multiple environments Harden and help secure Azure DevOps, GitHub, and a deployment pipeline Harden and help secure an Azure environment to ensure that changes are made through a controlled process

Learn Live: Build your first Bicep deployment workflow by using GitHub Actions

6:00 PM

Create an automated workflow in GitHub Actions that securely deploys resources to Azure from Bicep code. Configure your workflow to run on a schedule or when your configuration changes. In this episode, you will: Automate Bicep deployments by using a workflow in GitHub Actions Set up a workload identity to authenticate a workflow to Azure Select an appropriate workflow trigger and set of tasks for a Bicep deployment

Learn Live: Authenticate your Azure deployment workflow by using workload identities

6:00 PM

Workload identities enable your deployment workflows to authenticate securely with Azure without you managing any passwords, keys, or secrets. In this module, you'll learn what workload identities are, how they work, and how to create them. You'll also learn how to grant them permission to your Azure resources so that your workflows can deploy your Bicep files. In this episode, you will: Explain what a workload identity is and describe three types of workload identities: service principals, managed identities, and federated credentials Create a workload identity and link it to a GitHub Actions deployment workflow Configure the appropriate authorization for a workload identity to deploy Azure resources

Learn Live: Test your Bicep code by using GitHub Actions

6:00 PM

Validate and test your Bicep code in your deployment workflow. You'll use linting, preflight validation, and the what-if operation to validate your Azure changes before you deploy, and you'll test your resources after each deployment. In this episode, you will: Add Bicep code linting during continuous integration Add preflight deployment validation during build or release jobs Add what-if checks, including manual approval steps Verify the configuration of the deployed environment

Learn Live: Automate Azure infrastructure change reviews by using Bicep and GitHub

6:00 PM

Add checks to pull requests that run automatically during your code reviews. Run the Bicep linter on your code, and deploy the resources to a temporary environment to enable further automated and manual testing. In this episode, you will: Run automatic checks during a pull request Determine how you want to create ephemeral environments in your Azure environment Create ephemeral environments within pull requests
