Latest Version



This task is typically appended to the end of a pipeline if tagging is enabled in the Create Source or Unlocked Package tasks. The Execute Post Steps task will persist the Git tag by pushing it to the source code repository. A reminder to add this task to the pipeline is provided if a Create Package command exists in the pipeline with the tagging option enabled.
