We have this question frequently, do I need to request a release for solution/project X? So this article aims to explain the current release processes.
This is the only website that has an automated release, this happens every evening if work has been checked-in to the solution.
Please note there are a number of file extensions that are excluded from the release, such as many images and downloads with a view of keeping the file size of the website down when we come to publish it, so if you need these uploading to the live server please create a ticket. Below is a snippet of the exclusions list in the web.config file.
This is part of the secure website solution so is included in the automated release.
Click Once Deployed Apps
These client apps can be released by you if it is just the client app that has been updated.
If you need web services on the live server to be updated at the same time for example you are not able to do the release and need help from someone with Server access.
Current Click Once apps include:
- Scan Factory Client
- Comment Typing
- MC3 Presentation Creator (Killer Chart app)
- WIT Presentation Creator (desktop app)
All other projects if you need them releasing please create a ticket and someone with live server access can pick this up.
