Create delivery task
A Create Delivery task is an automatic task that creates a new delivery from a delivery pattern.
The input options for the Create Delivery task are:
|Pattern||ID or title of the pattern that will be used to create the delivery.|
|Folder||The delivery folder can be selected from the drop-down. Also, you can choose a variable to select the folder for the delivery.|
|Name||Title of the delivery that will be created.|
|Start date||Start date of the delivery. Uses the pattern’s value by default.|
|End date||End date of the delivery. Uses the pattern’s value by default.|
|Delivery ID||Output property bound to the variable that contains the ID of the created delivery.|
In the release flow editor, Create Delivery tasks are marked with a purple border.
A release that contains a Create Delivery task must have an automated tasks user assigned. This user must have:
- The View delivery, Edit delivery, or Edit tracked items permission on the folder where the delivery is located if they want to find the delivery.
- The Edit delivery permission to create a new delivery if Fallback is checked.
You can assign the automated tasks user in the Run automated tasks as user release property. For more information, see Configure release properties.
