Azure pipeline Windows agent UnicodeEncodeError#

For people who encounter UnicodeEncodeError when using Windows Azure Pipeline agent, the issue might be here.

As per above link, or this email, the solutions could be:

  • You can override just sys.std* to UTF-8 by setting the environment variable PYTHONIOENCODING=UTF-8.
  • You can override all I/O to use UTF-8 by setting PYTHONUTF8=1, or by passing the command-line option -X utf8.
