Working with patches

Hi, 

our solution has reached a size where we started to work with solution patches. Are there any best practises for CI/CD when working with patches? All information I found was related to solutions only. 

 

Alex Shlega stated in his blog (It Ain't Boring): 

 

6. What about more complicated scenarios where patching is required?

There are situations where that “simple pipeline” approach does not work. After all, as the solution keeps growing, it may become close to impossible to keep moving complete solution between different environments every time, and, instead, we may have to start splitting that solution into smaller ones and/or we may want to start using solution patches. In either case, there are a few problems with that, and I am not even sure what the solution would be here:

  • Even though solution packager supports patches, I am not quite certain what and how should we be merging in the source control
  • The pipelines have to be re-designed to understand this patching process

 

That doesn't sound very optimistic. Any advise on this topic would be highly appreciacted! 

 

Thanks
