- I’m investigating the use of octopus deploy at a customer. There is the following situation:
They have an application that consists out of several modules, which will each be packed into a nupkg. There is a TFS build server who will create all those nupkg with their version number, like 1.2.3 … Now after each build, they all have a ‘latest’ package version with the lastest number.
Problem is that they want to deploy ‘a selection’ of packages (or perhaps just one) to a specific stage, and not all.
When I was experimenting with octopus, I need to create a release. And in this release, you can specify which package you want to deploy.
But I don’t want to work with real ‘releases’… I want to deploy is a specific new package to a new stage. Is that possible?
- Also if I want to use continuous deployment, I can use octopus exe to do that. Do I have to create a ‘release’ number in advance then? Or am I missing the whole point of releases?
