Managing DevOps Artifacts

DevOps artifacts are referenced in a pipeline stage for automated deployment to the target environment. They are used to specify software package versions for deployment.

Each service in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) integrates with Identity and Access Management (IAM) for authentication and authorization, for all interfaces (the Console, SDK and CLI, and REST API). Before you begin using the DevOps service, you must create policies to control who has access to DevOps, and the type of access for each group of users.

For details about writing policies for the DevOps service and policy examples, see DevOps IAM Policies and Accessing Artifact Registry.

DevOps artifacts can be a container image, a generic artifact, helm chart, or they can be defined inline. The artifact source varies depending on the type of artifact. In DevOps, you can create references to the following types of artifacts.
