Quick Deploy

BI xPress provides two different ways of deploying SSIS packages in Visual Studio 2005/2008. Using SSIS Deployment Explorer and Using SSIS Quick Deploy Wizard. Quick Deploy is only available inside BIDS but Deployment Explorer can be launched outside BIDS.

How to deploy packages using Quick Deploy Wizard

2.   If you are launching Quick Deploy first time then you will have empty drop down list for target location. In that case click on "Edit List" button to bring location editor. If you already populated target locations then go to Step-6


3.   Click "Add Location" > Enter location information


4.   Click "Save Changes"

5.   Once all target locations are entered you can click "OK"

6.   Select package overwrite setting, Enter package password (only if packages are password protected) so you don't get any prompt during deploy
