Several developer and partner organisations are embracing a continuous integration/continuous delivery practices of software development.
There have been several examples in how to achieve this with IRIS, and at some point this requires scripts or code in IRIS to automate the setup/code build.
It would be good to have firstly a set of utilities in IRIS, supported by product, specifically built for automatic solution building and setup, callable from CI/CD pipelines.
Source control systems in GitHub, Azure, BitBucket all have add-ons that make implementing Ci/CD straightforward for different technologies. It would be good publish similar add-ons for IRIS developers.
Not really much to do, it just requires an accumulation of experience somewhere. At this point, the way it works now is kind of Ok, and mostly very dependent on the customer's project itself.
