I use environments to deploy applications via the agent. I wanted to know if it is possible to set provider specific settings via the appveyor.yml. For example, I'd like to set an artifact to be deployed. What I'd like to be able to do is something like the following.

deploy:
  - provider: Environment
    name: Testing
    on:
       branch: master
       MyApp.deploy_site: true
       MyApp.site_name: My site name

The documentation is a little vague in this area

    I see. Well, you can't specify provider settings in YML, but you can set their values through environment variables.

    Say, you can have configured on environment properties screen the following setting:

    MyApp.site_name           $(site_name)
    

    where $(site_name) is the name of environment variable that could be defined a) during the build or b) in "Environment variables" section of environment (default value).

    For example:

    environment:
      site_name: My site name
    
    deploy:
      - provider: Environment
        name: Testing
        on:
           branch: master
    

    This way when Environment deployment is called all environment variables from build context will be passed to deployment provider and available for substitution.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
