The application lifecycle management (ALM) story includes the following capabilities:

  • An app is based on a Power BI workspace with additional settings (parameters).
  • There are three release levels for an app: workspace (WIP) > package (release candidate) > published app (content that is publicly available to install through AppSource).
  • On each release level we keep a single version: one workspace in WIP, one package, one published app. To make an update to a published app, you deploy a package. Deploying a package will overwrite the published app in AppSource.
  • Building the app can continue at all times on the WIP workspace.
  • Whenever you are ready to create a release candidate, save the package.
