Build and deployment automation of a model-driven PowerApp using VSTS


This is the second part of a two part video.  The first part is here:
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/devkeydet/2018/04/10/zero-to-full-source-control-of-a-model-driven-powerapp-using-spkl/

The second video won’t make as much sense if you don’t watch the first video.  In this video, I build on the work I did to get a model-driven PowerApp (the artist formerly known as XRM…as I like to say) into source control by showing how to enable deployment automation using Package Deployer, including setting up initial data using the Configuration Migration tool.  Then, I show you how to use Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to build all the assets in source control into their deployable form.  Finally, I show you how to then use VSTS to automate the deployment of those assets to one or many environments.  One of the things I highlight in the video is the Dynamics 365 Build Tools on the Visual Studio Team Services Marketplace.  These tasks greatly improve the productivity of using VSTS with Dynamics 365 & the Common Data Service.

All of the things I do from scratch in these two videos are the foundation of some of the more advanced things I highlight in the Dynamics 365 model-driven PowerApp DevOps work I mention here:
