Greetings. I am in the process of implementing Azure DevOps (on Prem) at my company and have a few best practices question.
Small bit of Background:
We sell a packaged product that consists of a handful of VS2019 projects (4 winform applications, 1 windows service, 1 rest api, and a handful of wix installer projects). We do quarterly releases and distribute our product in the form of a handful of .msi's. All of the development is done inhouse by 5 developers. We plan on using the following Git branching model: https://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model. All VS2019 projects are versioned and released together.
Azure Git Repo Question:
Would it make sense to have just a single repo to house the source code for all of the VS2019 applications? This way I would only have to set one set of branching policies and permissions. It also saves time on repo setup and maintenance. Is this advisable? Is there a reason why multiple repos are a better option?
If the use of a single repo is advisable, how would we handle CI builds and builds when Pull Requests get submitted? If the pull request is for code in only one application, I don't want to build the other ones.
