Deployments not triggering automatically.

We have been experiencing something new today (at least we think it was just today). Builds are are completing but deployments to an environment (agent) are not getting triggered automatically anymore. We can go in to "Deployments" for the project and "Update" to deploy using the most recent passing build, but it's manual. Thoughts or ideas?

    Are you still experiencing that?

    As I understand to reproduce the issue I have to add "Environment" provider to appveyor.yml, correct?

    It is still happening. We are using the yml file and have the environment
    provider there.

    I've just tested and it worked:

    Do you see that in a build log?

    Hi Feodor, I'm working with Byron in this one and the build log is not showing any deploying message. It ends in build success message. Nothing else after that.

    Hi Camilo,

    Make sure appveyor.yml contains deploy section (if you use appveyor.yml) or deployment step is set on UI under project settings.

    Feodor, I found the problem. We were using environment and deploy_script tag at the same time and for what I ready, appveyor takes only deploy_script.

    But other issue I'm seeing is the deploy environments doesn't move forward from this message: Wait remote deployment agents to start deployment...

    Have you tried restarting Deployment Agent?

    Yes. I just restarted the service for deployment agent and now it deployed. Is this a normal behavior that I have to be restarting the deployment agent?

    No, sometimes connection between agent and the cloud is broken, but we are working on improving reliability.
