We've recently install the full version of courier and
updated some partial views and a view model class that holds data for a contact
form in Umbraco 7.1.4 (some custom code one of our templates is dependent on).
When we come to deploy the site from our test environment to live and do a
compare and install, courier just reports that no changes have been found. I've
included the files and folders section in courier and I can select the required
dlls and partial views but still no luck (even though I’ve remoted on the live
machine and the files are definitely different). I've found if I build the
package then add the files a number of times, sometimes this seems to work and
the compare and install discovers some differences and then goes ahead with the
Is there something i'm not doing correctly?
Make sure you're using the version of Courier for v7 http://our.umbraco.org/projects/umbraco-pro/umbraco-courier-2
Even with the correct version however, this is a known issue with a simple workaround - Courier does not detect Partial Views currently when not used via Umbraco as a Service. Courier does detect Macro Partial Views that are referenced from a Macro, but not straight MVC Partial Views. The recommendation is to add any Partial Views as "files" when you are deploying with Courier.
If you are running with Umbraco as a Servivce and Partial Views aren't deploying, could you let us know via that support channel?
Hi Paul, thanks for the quick response. I'll have a try of the solution you've suggested and post back here.
Hi Paul,Having recently installed the latest Courier package form v7 (we are running 7.2.2) I note that partial views are still not being processed by the packaging prcoess.Your suggested workaround to include partials as 'files' does not work for us as no files are listed when we select this channel.Could you please advise when a proper fix for this issue will be available.
Are you saying that no files are displayed in the tree in the courier deploy dialog? In that case I'd suspect permissions as the tree should list all files.
It's a feature request we have pending still...
@PaulHi Paul, how are you?
I'm having the same issue as ABC. I have all permisions for my user and using Files doesn't display anything.
Any ideas on how to solve that? Or at least diagnose as to why the dialog doesn't display anything?Thanks.
If you see no folders in the right-click deploy as below it's likely a permissions issue
If you are editing a revision and see no file (or folders) it's likely due to your config not being complete.
You need to add the appropriate file and/or folder to courier.config
With than and ap app restart you should see the folders as configured
Thanks @paul this solved my problem as well.
Thank you @Paul, that did it.
I was missing the fileItemProvider.
Thanks a lot!
Thanks Paul. I can also confirm that I was missing the fileItemProvider. Problem now resolved and a satisfactory workaround for packaging Partial Views.
