I setup a project whose main function is to be for runbooks, letting a team restart windows services, IIS app pools etc. This worked well until a dev created a deployment release by mistake, rather than a snapshot of a runbook. Having subsequently deleted that release, we get the error:
The resource ‘variableset-Projects-1492-s-0-BC4PD’ was not found.
which seems to be because the variables sets are grouped to projects/releases. To get round this, I had to clone the runbooks to be able to then use the clone for services restarts etc.
Does this therefore mean that projects with runbooks should not have releases deleted?
I also would like to know whether runbooks can be permissioned separately from deployments (e.g. Devs can use runbooks in PROD, but only deploy in pre-PROD), but perhaps that should be a separate ticket/question?
