Hello Readers, have you enrolled for the Microsoft exam AZ-400 Designing and Implementing Azure DevOps Engineer- Expert ? Are you willing to take up the exam and get certified? It is time to check your skills and review some sample questions that may appear for the AZ-400 certification exam.
Explanation: Evaluate your template to see if any dependencies are not needed and can be removed. Move some deployment operations into child resources which can be deployed after the resources with the circular dependency to resolve the problem.
Explanation: DSC is a management platform in PowerShell that enables you to manage your IT and development infrastructure with configuration as code. Create policies at the core of Azure to govern every existing resource or resource to be deployed. New policy constructs allow you to measure your VM configuration and discover configuration drifts.
Explanation: Instead of putting a secure value (like a password) directly in your template or parameter file, you can retrieve the value from an Azure Key Vault during deployment. You retrieve the value by referencing the key vault and secret in your parameter file. To access a key vault during template deployment, set enabledForTemplateDeployment on the key vault to true. The user who deploys the template must have Microsoft.KeyVault/vaults/deploy/action permission for the scope of the resource group and key vault.
Azure Policy evaluates the state by examining properties on resources that are represented in Resource Manager and RBAC focuses on managing user actions at different scopes. Azure Security Center helps you to monitor all the available security recommendations.
Explanation: The az find command provides you with example commands based on Azure documentation and usage patterns of the Azure CLI and Azure Resource Manager users
Explanation: Integrate an existing ACR with existing AKS clusters by supplying valid values for acr-name or acr-resource-id use command az aks update -n <cluster name> -g <resourcegroup name> –attach-acr <acr-name/acr-resource-id>
Explanation: Microservices can be deployed in different environments and scaled accordingly. Each microservice can be deployed, managed independently without affecting other services running on the environment.
Explanation: Multi-stage build is a new feature requiring Docker 17.05 or higher on the daemon and client. Multistage builds is useful to anyone who has struggled to optimize Docker files while keeping them easy to read and maintain.
Explanation: Canary deployments are a pattern for rolling out releases to a subset of users or servers. The idea is to first deploy the change to a small subset of servers, test it, and then roll the change out to the rest of the servers.
Explanation: Variable Groups is used to store pipeline based variable and can be linked with Azure Key Vault.
This brings us to the end of the correct answers section. For more such practice sessions and hands-on labs, check out TestPrep material.
Disclaimer: These questions are NOT appearing in the certification exam. I personally or CloudThat do not have any official tie-up with Microsoft regarding the certification or the kind of questions asked. These are my best guesses for the kind of questions to expect with Microsoft in general and with the examination.
Feel free to drop any questions in the comment box, I would love to address them. I hope you enjoyed the article. Best of luck!
