We’ve already seen that the default build definition has all the default steps active. We can disable (or remove) all the steps we’re not going to use. For example, the testing steps can be removed if we have no unit testing. We can also create new build definitions from scratch, however it’s easier to clone the default one and modify it to other branches or needs.
Since version 8.1 all the X++ hotfixes are gone, the updates are applied in a single deployable package as binaries. This implies that the source-controlled Metadata folder will only contain our custom packages and models, no standard packages anymore.
