Visual Studio 2015 | Team Services | TFS 2015 | Previous version
A newer version of Release Management is available
Release Management features have been integrated into the Build & Release hub in Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Visual Studio Team Services. For more information, see Continuous integration on any platform.
The newer web-based version is the recommended alternative to the server and client version described in this topic. If you do not already have Release Management installed, we encourage you to use the web-based version in TFS 2015 Update 2 and above or Visual Studio Team Services instead of the version described here. If you are already using an earlier server and client version, you should be aware that no new features will be added to these versions.
Support a rapid release cadence and manage simultaneous releases. Set up release paths that represent your stages from development to production. Run actions to deploy your app to an environment for that stage. Add approvers to sign off that the app has successfully passed each stage. Start your release process manually or automatically from a build. Then track your releases as they move through your release path.
Set up and start a release
- Set up the release management server, client, and deployment agents.
- Set up users and groups and control access to Release Management.
