After reading @jflheureux's answer and little bit digging around Habitat release package.
First Aha!, it is a Sitecore package definition file which contains everything - content items, security items, files. Second Aha!, we can
Generate Package using
Sitecore Rocks by using
package.xml which is a similar process as
Package Designer in
To test this:
I just had to rename
HabitatBuild.package and open this file using Visual Studio with Sitecore Rocks preinstalled.
Manual steps to make this working:
- Open Visual Studio
- Make sure you have Sitecore Rocks extension installed in Visual Studio
- Make sure you have Sitecore website connection added in Sitecore Explorer
HabitatBuild.package in Visual Studio
- Select the Sitecore website for connection in pop-up dialog
- Click on
Still, I need to find out how to automate this process.
Thanks again @jflheureux for helping indirectly :)
We can use the
Package Designer directly with
package.xml, just drop the file in
Data/packages folder of Sitecore instance and Open the
Package Designer and generate the package.
