The Deployment Automation Manager consists of two tools used for:
Although the tools are best used in conjunction, they can be used independently as well.
The Automated Versioning Manager is a tool that helps manage Appian applications and database DDL files in a version control system. Given an Appian application ZIP file, the Automated Versioning Manager performs the following actions:
The goal of this tool is to facilitate the adoption and usage of a version control system to perform configuration management of the Appian applications and database DDL files.
With the Automated Import Manager, users can automatically deploy applications and patch contents (either applications from Appian OR packages generated from the Automated Versioning Manager) to any environment. Users will have three options for deployment: the tool can either deploy from the tool’s user interface in one click, trigger the deployment from an external CI tool or deploy from the command line.
The Automated Import Manager automates the process of inspecting the application, executing DDL scripts, updating CDTs, republishing the appropriate datastores, and importing the application.

In our case we are trying to build only one application . So we are using "buildsingleapp".
Have you tried using "buildAllApps"?
Hi, suvasisb. Right now, it only supports Git repositories.
While trying the buildSingleApp action does it consider packaging the DDL file in the package?
I am unable to deploy the application using the deployment Automation manager (import manager ) , as the package generated by AVM is not containing the ddl files to execute, but the metadata property file refers to ddl file and the deployment fails because of the same.
Hi, aravinds0003. When you are importing a deployment automation package (this is different from an application or patch ZIP), you should not be be adding DDLs separately since they should already be specified in the package itself. I hope this helps.
we are facing below issue : "Status: Failed. Current step: . Error message: Error in the configuration of the deployment. Data source and DDL cannot be provided when supplying an automated deployment package.."
We are using sql server . Not sure what we are missing here?
Is it compatible with https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/devops/repos/ ?
This means it couldn't find test.sql. Can you please double-check to make sure it's at the location specified in the properties file?
Hi, raghulvishnud. This is on our radar as well. Thanks for letting us know.
