Why does MS Deploy try to build? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1937420497 posted

    I'm trying to setup a continuous deployment scenario where the assemblies will be built and tested on the build server (team city). The assemblies are then saved to a folder. That folder location is then passed to another Team City task that does the deployment. But MSDeploy wants to build the assemblies again. But MSDeploy is trying to build the assemblies again. How do I tell MSDeploy to not build?

    Here's part of the log:

    I believe this is how MSDeploy works.

    MSDeploy will attempt to build your site first before deploying it to the server

    As far as  I am concerned, I cannot change this setting either

    Hi craigber,

    As dyyo said that it should build the website first.

    This link is about web deploy settings that can help you:

    Thanks

    This is not good and is a bad practice. Anytime you do a build, even considering you may have the same file versions from Version Control, you run the risk of introducing bugs. As a best practice, you should deploy to production the same binaries that were tested. What you're saying is Web Deploy makes this impossible.

    This now leads to the next question... does Web Deploy always build or only if the source files are newer than the binaries?

    Starain,

    Thanks for the link. It did answer my question. A successful build is a requirement before deployment. I looked at packages, but they won't solve the problem either because when you move from staging to production, the connection string changes and web.config transformations have already taken place.

    It looks like I'll need to put in a Connect request to have some changes made to web deploy so that it can be work "properly".

    Hi craigber,

    You could submit this feature request: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio . The Visual Studio product team is listening to user voice there. You can send your idea there so the others can vote it. If you submit this suggestion, you might post that link here which will benefit others who has the similar issue.

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    Thanks, User Voice is much better than Connect.
