Views & Blocks to production?

Hello,

I’m now starting a new project which has pretty tight security restrictions to the servers, which means I do not have access to the production environment at all including the actual drupal site.
My question lies in the views and blocks, up until now for deployments I used to zip the code put it on the server, run entup and changed the views manually on the servers.
How can the views be deployed?
I saw something about an export and import button on views3.x but I don’t have it, also, I saw a few things about the configuration manager but I’m not understanding how to import only certain views for example incase I change more than I want to deploy.
What’s the right way to do this? How is this done properly?

Thanks,
joaogl.
