Web.config transformation with Build IT utility RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1955139968 posted

    Hi, 

    We are using Microsoft Build IT for our application deployment process. In short these are steps it does:

    1. Get latest code from Source Safe.

    2. Creates publish version of website and some of our database scripts and labels code in Source safe for that build number.

    3. Sends an email to development team.

    We are creating build only one time for deployment for each environments (Local, System Test, UAT, Staging and Production). that means, we do not create separate build for each of our environment. Now as of now we are keeping separate copy of configuration files for separate environments, so we have to maintain five configuration files. I would like to use web config transformation to maintain configuration files.

    how do i perform transformation for all configuration files with only one build using Build IT?

    Any idea?

    Hi Tarang

    We are using Microsoft Build IT for our application deployment process. In short these are steps it does:

    Generally we don't use Build IT for application deployment now, and many other deployment strategies are available for us to deploy our applications, Web Deployment Packages, One-Click Publish or msdeploy, etc, you could learn something about that,

    #ASP.NET Web Application Project Deployment 

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd394698%28v=VS.100%29.aspx 

    At the same time there is something about ASP.NET Web Deployment  Web.config File Transformations, please have a look, and check whether it is helpful for you,

    # Web.config File Transformations 

    hope it helps you,

    With regards
