I am inspecting logs in Azure DevOps:
2021-03-11T00:49:23.5944120Z ============================================================================== 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5944831Z Task : Download pipeline artifact 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5945699Z Description : Download a named artifact from a pipeline to a local path 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5946222Z Version : 1.2.5 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5946643Z Author : Microsoft Corporation 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5947566Z Help : Download a named artifact from a pipeline to a local path 2021-03-11T00:49:23.5947945Z ============================================================================== 2021-03-11T00:49:24.1641444Z Download from the specified build: #14437 2021-03-11T00:49:24.1644685Z Download artifact to: D:\a\r1\a/build/api-prod
What is very confusing is this path: D:\a\r1\a/build/api-prod
The task is running on Microsoft provided Windows agent (vs2017-win2016).
The task was not defined by me explicitly, this is an automatic task when creating a stage with steps in Release pipeline.
This doesn't seem to cause any particular issue, but I was wondering what causes this behavior, as I thought Windows uses backward slash in paths.
