    Migrations / Incremental Deployment

    Hello,I have a question around the way changes are deployed to a new environment.For example, if I rename a property on a document type, is uSiteBuilder smart enough to recognise this, or will it remove the old property and add the new one?I guess what I'm looking for is something similar to Entity Framework's Code First Migrations.Will uSiteBuilder do the job for me?Thanks,- Chris

    Hi Chris. uSiteBuilder won't do this for you. It will remove old property only if you mark your property as obsolete (while not changing its name). If you change the name of a property, old property will stay as it is and new property will be created. uSiteBuilder does not automatically delete anything, unless you add obsolete attribute to a property.

    Hi Vladan. Thanks for getting back to me. I'm not sure how often we'd actually need to rename things - I just wondered how it would handle it. We've been building sites with Umbraco for a while and it feels like getting proper version control over the document types, etc, and having a decent toolset for deploying upgrades is something that we really need to get a handle on.


    We'll take uSiteBuilder for a spin and see how it goes!
