Continuous Integration

Azure DevOps provides an easy to use Marketplace of plugins/extensions which makes Azure DevOps’ extensibility prevalent at key places in the user experience, such as when authoring a pipeline.

GitLab does not provide a marketplace of plugins for integrations into pipelines.

GitLab also offers Progressive Delivery capabilities such as Feature Flags, Review Apps and Deployment Scenarios (canar, incremental, etc.), which Azure DevOps does not offer.
