Custom Control Conditions in Azure DevOps Pipeline Steps

Azure DevOps pipelines support default conditions allowing you to execute a step “Only when all previous tasks have succeeded”, “Even if a previous task has failed, unless the build was canceled”, “Even if a previous task has failed, even if the build was canceled” or “Only when a previous task has failed”. These conditions facilitate execution of  steps in a build or release pipeline to cater different scenarios.
