SSIS Source Control Azure Dev Ops Git repo help

Appleby, Nick 1 Reputation point

HI All.
I have recently moved an SSIS project from VSTS into an Azure DevOps git repo.
The project is a simple one with a master package calling several child packages using "Execute package Task " with reference type = "Project Reference"
The project itself was set up to use project deployment method.

Now it is in the DevOps repo, when I open SSDT in visual studio, all of the references within the master package are returning errors and the only method way to see the references for the child packages is to change reference type = "External" then point to the file system path. This will obviously fail once I deploy to a server.

    Hi Appleby,

    If you change reference type = "External" in Execute Package Task, please copy the .dtsx files in the new server.

    Best Regards,
