As explained in the article “Deploy continuously to Azure” there should be a “Create Release Definition” when right click on a build created with VSO hosted build controller.
Unfortunately for me it was not there..
As explained in the article checked if the release management extensions for VS installed and it was there.
What could be wrong here? It occurred to me that there could be an update to the extension. OF course there is an update.
Once Installed and restarted Visual Studio the “Create Release Definition” is available.
