Hi,
We have only just started to play with octopus, currently our TFS builds drop the software into the right folders for testing so the QA team are running the latest version of the software. Is there a way in octopus to automatically deploy to test once our TFS build has finished? We want to avoid the QA team having to go into octopus to deploy it from there for certain systems.

Regards
Chris

    HI Chris,

    Thanks for reaching out. Its definitely possible to hook up your TFS build with your Octopus Server.

    Which version of TFS are you running? The story will be quite different depending on your answer to that question.

    I recommend you to take a look at our landing doc page for integration with TFS and let me know if you run into any troubles: https://octopus.com/docs/api-and-integration/tfs-vsts

    Best regards,
    Dalmiro

    Hi Chris,

    That's good. As long as you have at least the version 2 of TFS 2015, you'll be able to use the plugin mentioned in that link.

    Best regards,
    Dalmiro

    Hi,
    Thanks, what if our builds aren’t XAML based, will that cause us issues?

    Regards

    Hi Chris,

    It will work, yes. If you click on the link for your TFS version in this table you'll notice that It'll lead you to a doc that doesn't reference XAML based builds ;)

    Cheers
