Web applications commonly require processes that run as background tasks and are scheduled at intervals at a specific time or triggered at an event. They do not require a fancy interface for IO because the focus is on the process rather than the output. Azure WebJobs provides excellent support to accomplish this through web console applications typically in a cloud environment. WebJob is a feature of Azure App Service that enables you to run a program or script in the same instance as a web app, API app, or mobile app. And Azure App Service is an HTTP-based service for hosting web applications, REST APIs, and mobile backends.

The web console app in the .NET framework is easy to build and deploy WebJobs using Azure services. Moreover, the WebJobs console app can be easily configured for CI/CD using Azure DevOps Pipelines to automatically deploy the web app to Azure App Service on every successful build. Therefore, Azure pipelines enable build, testing, and deployment in a continuous integration(CI)/continuous delivery(CD) fashion using Azure DevOps services.
