UAAS-454 - Automatically bump ClientDependency on deploy

I'm not totally sure what the best strategy is, but I find it weird that I have to bump the ClientDependency version myself, before finally deploying a chunk of changes from DEV to LIVE.

If there were a switch in the portal for this, I'd personally always have it ON (to auto-update CD) but I'm sure someone could have a really good use for turning it OFF for a specific deploy; e.g. for very large sites with many sessions and you know nothing's changed so don't want to force a cold refresh).

i have a basic health check to check the age of the files in the client dependency folder and increment the version number - ''I haven't tidied up the repo yet but i will push it to github - its not the most complex code''

maybe the feature could be implemented as a health check so if you don't want it to happen to automatically you could push do it via the back office ?

I like the Health Check idea very much, as it allows me to "just" do it without having to go through the portal.

(What happens on next deploy is another headache, I guess?)

I would like something simelar. An idea could be if any file of the listed types in 'fileDependencyExtensions' in ClientDependency.config has changed, it should get a new version id automatically.
