Guide - Intershop Commerce Platform Development

Within the product “Repositories for Local Development Environment” ( the following restrictions apply:

  • no write access is possible to Git repositories

  • no read and write access to the project specific Azure Registry is possible

  • the access to ADO project boards and wiki is not possible


Intershop provides an integrated environment for development and production in Microsoft Azure Cloud. All continuous integration processes are preconfigured in a project location in Azure DevOps.


Azure DevOps Project Setup

Each customer project starts with an organization and a project in Azure DevOps. The project contains prepared source repositories and provides access to the necessary Java artifacts, pipelines, an optional ticket system, and wiki system. For container handling two registries are provided - one for Intershop container images and the second one for self-created images.

The CI/CD system is working with a standard configuration.

To access the various resources, you need an Azure account, which is provided by Intershop.

Default Git Repositories Configuration

All Git repositories in an Intershop project are prepared with a template as starting point. Intershop prefers and recommends GitFlow branching strategy, see So, there is always a “master”-Branch and a “develop”-Branch prepared. The provided Azure DevOps pipelines assume a development in this GitFlow branching strategy.

The following branches will automatically trigger a new build, if changes are available:



For feature development, based on develop branch.


For hotfix development, based on master or release branches.


Stabilization development, based on develop branch. This branch prepares a release on the master.


This branch is the working development branch.


The master branch holds the stable code. Release tags will be created from this branch.

Tags “version/**” will trigger a release build with the correct version. Intershop recommends semantic versioning (see
