Work has begin on providing a tool to evaluate variables before deployment
At the moment we don’t have further plans to apply config transforms before a release but this should help solve the bigger question of “what will my all my variable values actually be at run time”Tim Thompson supported this idea ·

We have a large percentage of 'first' deploys to an environment fail purely due to the mental tax of trying to project the current variable configuration into it's final deployed state. An ability to 'dry run' and eyeball the resulting config files would almost entirely eliminate the need for our current practice of deploying to an environment _before_ it's required simply to confirm config values are correct.
