Useful Tips

Follow these tips when installing and updating our releases:

  • On a local machine, we recommend creating a new clean folder for each stable update. This helps to avoid unexpected behavior in the cloud when CI rebuilds a platform image from scratch.
  • Keep vc-package.json under source control, such as in GitHub, Azure DevOps, etc. It helps to have a history of changes.
  • You can customize the location of the vc-package.json file by using the -PackageManifestPath ./somedir/somename.json parameter:

    vc-build install -PackageManifestPath /path/package.json
  • To customize DiscoveryPath and ProbingPath, run:

    vc-build install -PackageManifestPath some_directory/vc-package.json -DiscoveryPath ../modules -ProbingPath platform_dir/app_data/modules
  • Appsettings.json is backed up during a platform update.

  • You can find the preview version of the modules in our pull requests and modules_v3.json on github.
