Channel version rules package selection


In my channel version rules I have “^$”, meaning not any pre-release packages.

Meanwhile, this package -> is selected. To my understanding, with semantic versioning this denotes pre-release package (something after first hyphen). So - a bug?

If package version numbers ends not with number, eg. this doesn’t happen.

Hey @arturs,

I used your version numbers and the same regex and got the desired results. Which version are you currently on? I tested this on 2020.3.3.

Please let me know.



We want to upgrade, but first we need to provision SQL Server 2019.

Hey @arturs,

I spun up a VM on 2019.6.4 and followed the same logic above. I went to Design Rule and got the same results:

Are you seeing the weird behavior in this screen or another?

By which method are you creating releases?



Indeed on design version rule this seems to work. But when I create release (manually by clicking on create release) proposed package is in version that doesn’t pass version rules (and other versions do exist). I attach screenshots.


Got it.

Sorry - it was my mistake.

I didn’t include all packages in “apply rule to” box. :frowning:

Btw. is there a feature (or maybe will be) that will let me choose that channel rules applies to all packages referenced by process, not just selected steps?

Hey @arturs,

No worries, it happens to the best of us!

I’m glad you got it going. The functionality is the same in latest version. I think they intend to keep it that way, but I can definitely pass along the feedback to our product team.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
