I’m currently in the process of migrating from full fat on site Release Management to the web based version in TFS 2015. One thing I’ve noticed is that in the old client you can create a deployment sequence and configure actions to run in parallel, for example I might have these two steps running at the same time:

I’m currently in the process of migrating from full fat on site Release Management to the web based version in TFS 2015. One thing I’ve noticed is that in the old client you can create a deployment sequence and configure actions to run in parallel, for example I might have these two steps running at the same time:

SQLServer – DeployDatabase.ps1

AppServer – DeployWebApp.ps1

In the web based version it appears the equivalent of ‘Actions’ (now being referred to as ‘Tasks’) can only be set serially. So you can see there’s potentially a significant loss of time when you expand the idea of parallel tasks to multiple server roles (all performing independent steps).

For clarity, I know you can setup a task to target a group of servers, but this will limit you to only running one type of task at a time.

So my question is: Does this functionality exist? Have I missed a trick somewhere? It seems the new web based release management focuses more on the Parallel environment deployment aspect of things, forgetting the need to deploy in as fast a way as possible through each environment.
