Deployment groups

Last Update: 4/7/2017

Team Services: Deployment groups are not yet available to all Team Services accounts. TFS: At present, deployment groups are not available in Team Foundation Server.

A deployment group is a logical set of deployment target machines that have agents installed on each one. You define groups on the Deployment Groups tab of the Build & Release hub.

Deployment groups also specify the security context and runtime targets for the agents. As you create a deployment group, you add users and give them appropriate permissions to administer, manage, view, and use the group.

When authoring a Team Services or TFS Release definition, you can specify the deployment targets for a phase using a deployment group. This makes it easy to define parallel execution of deployment tasks.
