If your regular build artifacts do not have Sitecore vanilla assemblies and files, then you can install the package once using 'Install a package' link in Sitecore Control Panel. This is sufficient.

Otherwise - this may not be an elegant way but it does what is needed.

  1. You can extract the package.zip which is inside .update package file using 7-Zip.
  2. Copy the content of addedfiles, addedfolders and changedfiles into a single folder and keep it your repo.
  3. Install the update package in standalone environment, serialize the addeditems and changeditems content to your regular content serialization process.
  4. Add a task in Azure Pipeline to copy the content from #2 step after the artifacts are copied. Content will be synched as part of your content serialization process.
  • Perfect. Thanks for the detailed steps provided.
