My VSTS Tasks–Config Tokenizer, Swap Web Slot, Dacpac Deploy

Some people have been asking for the source code to some of the VSTS agent tasks that I use in my demos.  I posted them to github (  In the repo are the power shell VSTS agent tasks that I use in my demos:

  • ConfigTokenizer – Assuming there is a .token file right next to the config file, this powershell tasks will swap out configuration tokens in configuration files
  • SwapWebSlot – This task will swap two web deployment slots
  • dacpacDeployTask – This task will deploy a database schema using a dacpac

All these tasks are demo quality tasks.  They are not production level bullet proof tasks.  I just whipped them out super quick to get my demos working.  They will however, get you started!
