When we create the CI pipeline and CD pipeline it will be created separately, Once the CI pipeline is finished it will create a drop folder then we manually have to go to release pipeline, we need to select the Drop folder and manually trigger the CD pipeline.
Continuous Deployment (CD) triggers in a CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment) pipeline are essential for automating the deployment of code changes to various environments, such as development, staging, and production. CD triggers ensure that deployments happen automatically whenever specific conditions are met, such as the successful completion of a build or the approval of a release.
To enable the Automatic CD(Release) pipeline trigger, we must enable the Continuous deployment trigger on the release pipeline.
After selecting artifacts there will be an option for a Continuous deployment trigger as shown below.
We then can enable the Continuous deployment trigger on the CD pipeline to Automate the process of CI and CD, post this trigger enabled we can see our desired output on a website in just one click.
In summary, CD triggers play a pivotal role in the automation of deployment processes in a CI/CD pipeline. They help ensure that code changes are seamlessly and consistently deployed to different environments while allowing for flexibility in responding to various events and conditions. CD triggers improve the efficiency, reliability, and speed of software delivery in modern development practices.
