Deployment Agent IIS Application Name

I have a server inside our corporate firewall running IIS with the Appveyor Deployment Agent installed. I'm trying to deploy a project packaged for Web Deploy to a named application on the default web site. So far, I've only been able to get it to deploy as a site (dumping all the deployed files into the root directory). I'm using web deploy parameters to set some of the Web.config settings. Is there a way to accomplish this without poking a hole in the firewall?

    Hi Adam,

    I think we could add another optional application_name parameter to deployment agent settings. Right now Web Deploy's IIS Web Application Name sync parameter is set to just a web site name. I think setting it to <site_name>/<application_name> should do a trick. Is this what you need?

    Thanks, Feodor, that worked. It would be nice to have that optional parameter, as the environment variable would conflict if I tried to deploy a second application to that same server. Thanks for the help.

    Hi Adam,

    It's been added. Now there is another <artifact_name>.application_name parameter that can be set to IIS application name (virtual directory). Should be used together with website_name parameter to build a full web app path.

    Update deployment agent is here:

    Let me know how that works for you.
