This release is intended to help people in the following scenario:
- Using Team Foundation Service (TFS Online) + hosted build controller + deploying to a SharePoint virtual machine in the cloud (e.g. Azure, AWS etc.)
If you are using Team Foundation Service + on-premises
build controller, you can use the standard releases of this Codeplex project.
Important notes about this release:
- It currently consists mainly of a toolkit/instructions, rather than end-to-end tested scripts.
- It has been created by Yanchen Wu and others, of the SharePoint Developer Tools team (within Microsoft DEVDIV) - Yanchen kindly agreed to host his work here, so that it sits next to existing tools for SharePoint Continuous Integration for farm/sandboxed solutions
- It relies upon deploying to a publicly-accessible SharePoint VM in the cloud, since you need to use PowerShell remoting (as per the other releases). This is not typically possible for on-premises virtual machines (since firewalls separate them from the internet)
Please see the ReadMe.docx for more guidance on how to use this release.
