Pipeline Analytics

Azure DevOps pipelines Analytics is a new feature that gives you insights into the performance of your Azure DevOps pipelines. You can use Azure DevOps pipelines analytics to answer important questions about your pipeline, such as:

  • What are the most common failures in my pipeline?
  • What are the most time-consuming tasks in my pipeline?
  • How many builds are running in parallel?

To check the duration of an Azure DevOps pipeline, navigate to your project’s Pipelines page and select the pipeline you’re interested in. Click on Analytics
