Have been searching around the web, but I can't seem to find what I need and I'm loath to put something custom together without definitely ruling out some sort of supported solution.

Due to auditing requirements in our company, all changes require business sign-off/approval before being released to production. The persons doing these approvals are not IT personnel and do not understand a lot about development practices.

We're currently using TFS 2017 Update2 for our build/release processes. There would no appetite for any funding to switch to another product. The email notifications produced from TFS leave a lot to be desired. At times they're even confusing for some of the Developers. Needless to say, these notifications in their current state are not usable for our process.

What we really need is something clean and simple along the lines of

Release Awaiting your Approval

Items in this release

  1. 15483 - Add new report to show something new

  2. 84158 - Add graph to page that is just showing numbers

[Approve] [Reject]

We're stumbling along in a journey towards continuous delivery, so quite often these emails would only refer to one item.

Can anyone direct me to something that could be used, or adapted for this?

Cheers Phil

  • You mean the pre deploy approval doesn't work for you ? docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/pipelines/release/approvals/… – Tensibai Jun 5 '18 at 9:45
  • @Tensibai sorry for not replying to your comment earlier. I've been on leave and haven't had to deal with the emails for a little while. >The email notifications produced from TFS leave a lot to be desired. >At times they're even confusing for some of the Developers. >Needless to say, these notifications in their current state are not >usable for our process. I'm looking for something succinct and clear. Cheers Phil – philcart Jul 12 '18 at 8:08
