You have an existing build pipeline in Azure Pipelines.
You need to use incremental builds without purging the environment between pipeline executions.
What should you use?
A. a self-hosted agent
B. Microsoft-hosted parallel jobs
C. a File Transform task
Correct Answer: A
When you run a pipeline on a self-hosted agent, by default, none of the subdirectories are cleaned in between two consecutive runs. As a result, you can do incremental builds and deployments, provided that tasks are implemented to make use of that. You can override this behavior using the workspace setting on the job.
B: The workspace clean options are applicable only for self-hosted agents. When using Microsoft-hosted agents job are always run on a new agent.
