Today we are happy to announce the release of our second Azure DevOps task in the marketplace, which allows you to deploy code from the asset library into a cloud test and sandbox environment. This completes are first version of end-to-end CI/CD automation for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. If you already have the extension enabled in your Azure DevOps account, the update upload task and new deploy task should be available without any action needed. Search for "LCS" when adding new tasks to your release pipeline and you will find the new Asset Deployment task. We are also actively working on official documentation on the usage and setup of the tasks, so stay tuned for that.
As outlined in our original post when we released the asset library upload task, you will need to perform some setup around Azure Active Directory to create a Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) connection in Azure DevOps. If you've already performed this setup previously, you can re-use the same connection for this new task.
With this release, there are a few notes to make.
For the upload task:
For the new deploy task:
We are excited about these first steps in our CI/CD story and are looking forward to your feedback.
