Building CI/CD Releases
Building a Release
1. Ensure the RELEASE_NOTES.md file is updated with the up-to-date release notes for the upcoming release.
This file is in the base directory of the project, and will look something like this:
It is important to ensure this file is up to date, as the release notes are generated directly from this file. Additionally, some of the Zulip notifications regarding the release are formatted to include these notes.
2. Trigger the release pipeline.
Navigate to the FHIR Azure Pipelines Landing Page, and select the project your are releasing.
- On the side menu, select the pipelines option from the Pipelines menu icon (it kinda looks like a spaceship)
- You should see a list of pipelines displayed here:
- Pull Request Pipeline
- Master Branch Pipeline
- Release Branch Pipeline
- Select the
Release Branch Pipeline, and then manually trigger a build.
