Modern Lifecycle Development requires teams to be agile and work with a DevOps mindset. To realize that vision fully, it is paramount to have a robust release pipeline for managing the releases. Release Management vNext is a VSTS service that enables teams to automate the deployment of their applications in different environments and manage releases effectively with great traceability. RM vNext service makes it possible for teams to do continuous integration and continuous delivery with a sophisticated approval and configuration management workflow. RM vNext is in the Public Preview stage currently.
In this blog post, I will demonstrate using RM VNext for an OnPrem deployment using On Prem Build/Release Agents set up. We will be deploying a simple MVC application which will be packaged as a zip file for Web Deploy deployment using out-of-box IIS Deployment Task. We will set up both Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment for this sample application.
