In Dynamics 365 For Finance and Supply Chain we rely heavily on Azure DevOps for managing aspects of our projects, especially development and deploying packages.
Today a customer told me that they hit the roof on the free/included alotment for parallell build in Azure Hosted Pipelines. They wanted to understand what it had been used for. I found a very handy new preview feature called Historical Views for Pipelines.
To turn it on you you click on the settings icon in the top right corner and click Preview Features. The feature can be turned on for single users or entire organizations.
This feature will help you understand your usage.
The first thing you need to in order to purchase more parallel jobs is to set up billing for your Azure DevOps organization. Go to Organization Setting – Billing. The billing options are the same ones that you are using for “regular” Azure.
After you have set up billing, go to Organization Settings – Parallel Jobs and select Purchase Parallel jobs.
The pricing for additional paralell jobs are $40/month which gives you 1 paralell job with unlimited minutes.
