Difference between Pipeline and release


Can someone please explain the difference between Pipeline and release.

If pipeline is implemented to build, test, and deploy software faster and easier then how different is release. Kindly provide your inputs

Hello @zafar03,
Pipeline: it’s a list of events that happen in the code lifecycle. Starting from the build, to testing and deployment. Pipeline usually takes code, builds it, tests, and creates an artifact

Release: is the distribution of the final version or the newest version of the software which will be the final result of the pipeline

Thanks for the confirmation @Ayman, So if i get it right. Release takes the Artifact from the pipeline and deploy it on the Compute instances \ Containers ?
