Integrating Percy with your Azure Pipeline Build environment

Configuring environment variables

Step 1: Add PERCY_TOKEN to your pipeline as a secret:

Start by configuring PERCY_TOKEN, our project-specific, write-only API token. It can be found in your Percy project settings and set in your pipeline's variables as a secret. Remember to click the padlock to encrypt the variable.

In your Azure pipeline:

  1. First edit your pipeline.
  2. Click on the kebab menu and choose variables.
  3. Add a variable named PERCY_TOKEN, with the value set to the write-only token from your Percy project. This token can be found in each Percy project's settings. Remember to click the padlock to encrypt it.
  4. Save your changes.

Step 2: Add PERCY_TOKEN to your build configuration:

Azure's docs show how the PERCY_TOKEN secret can be added to your azure-pipelines.yml file in the env section. i.e.:

- script: |
    npm install
    npm run test


Keep your Percy token secret

Anyone with access to your token can add builds to your project, though they cannot read data.

More information

If you're working on a public open source project, you may want Percy to run on builds from forks of your repository. The Azure Pipelines documentation titled Validate contributions from forks will be of interest to you.
