Which action should you include in the recommendation?

A. Configure post-deployment approvals in the deployment pipeline.
B. Integrate Azure DevOps and SonarQube.
C. Integrate Azure DevOps and Azure DevTest Labs.

Correct Answer: B

You can manage technical debt with SonarQube and Azure DevOps.
Note: Technical debt is the set of problems in a development effort that make forward progress on customer value inefficient. Technical debt saps productivity by making code hard to understand, fragile, time-consuming to change, difficult to validate, and creates unplanned work that blocks progress. Unless they are managed, technical debt can accumulate and hurt the overall quality of the software and the productivity of the development team in the long term
SonarQube an open source platform for continuous inspection of code quality to perform automatic reviews with static analysis of code to:
✑ Detect Bugs
✑ Code Smells
✑ Security Vulnerabilities
✑ Centralize Quality
