Octopus Deploy integrates with Team Foundation Server and VSTS to provide for a full automated build and deployment pipeline. This section provides information about how to integrate Octopus Deploy and the various verions of Microsoft's build server.
Supported TFS/VSTS versions
Depending on the version of TFS/VSTS you are using, the recommended approach for a successful integration with Octopus may vary. Use the below chart to pick the right approach for your build server version.
|VSTS/VSO||Octopus Extension for TFS and VSTS||This is the hosted version of TFS. Our integration will always aim to be compatible with this offer, along with the latest TFS on-premise solution.|
|TFS 2015 Update 2 and newer||Octopus Extension for TFS and VSTS||While TFS 2015 is supported (from update 2 upwards), it is highly recommended to upgrade to TFS 2017 to get the latest versions of the extension with all the new features and bug fixes.|
|TFS 2013 and older||Octopack & Octo.exe||These versions of TFS had XAML-based builds, reason why the approaches required a bit more manual work than with more recent TFS versions.|
