I'm a little confused about the AppVeyor agent and respect to how it should be set up.

I've been following this link:

but it seems the instructions are a bit off or has changed.

for instance, under the "Configuring deployment settings" section, it suggests we should create a provider setting that is a provider of "AppVeyor Agent".

however, going to my build configuration settings > deployment > providers > "add deployment"

the dropdown does not contain the appveyor agent as a provider.


also, for a .yml setup, i dont see appveyor agent as a provider either.

please advise.

    Hi Kenny,

    AppVeyor Agent provider is available when you create a new environment at page.

    To deploy to Agent-based environment during the build you use Environment deployment provider which is available at settings > deployment > providers > "add deployment".

    You can't setup a new Agent environment in YML it's on UI only. However, you can deploy to Agent environment and this can be described in YML.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
