Go to Azure DevOps, and to Pipelines -> Releases to create the new release. Select “New release pipeline” and choose “Empty job” from the list. On the artifact box select the build which will be used for this release definition: Pick the build definition you want to use for the release in “Source”, “Latest” in “Default version” and push “Add”.The new task version 1 works for both type of environments: Microsoft managed (regular environments) and self-service environments. The task version 0 is the old one and will only work with regular environments. You can safely switch your deploy tasks to version 1. What’s different in task version 1? I guess that some work behind it that we don’t see to make it support self-service, but in the UI we only see a new field called “Name for the update“.This field is needed only for the self-service environments deployments, it will be ignored for regular ones, and corresponds to the field with the same name that appears on LCS when we apply an update to a sandbox environment:The default field’s value is the variable $(Release.ReleaseName) that is the name of the release, but you can change it, for example I’ll be using a pattern like PREFIX BRANCH $(Build.BuildNumber) to have the same name we have for the builds and identifying what we’re deploying to prod quickier.
