Team Services | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | Previous versions (XAML builds)
Here we explain settings you can change on the build definition Options tab.
Select this option to build multiple configurations. For example, you could build a C++ app for both debug and release configurations on both x86 and x64 platforms. For details about this example, see Visual Studio Build.
Create a work item on failure
If the build process fails, you can automatically create a work item to track getting the problem fixed. You can specify the work item type.
You can also select if you want to assign the work item to the requestor. For example, if this is a CI build, and a team member checks in some code that breaks the build, then the work item is assigned to that person.
Additional Fields: You can set the value of work item fields. For example:
Q: What other work item fields can I set? A: Work item field index
Allow scripts to access the OAuth token
Select this check box if you want to enable your script to use the build process OAuth token.
For an example, see Use a script to customize your build process.
Do I need a build agent?
You need at least one agent to run your build. Get an agent.
I can't select a default agent queue and I can't queue my build. How do I fix this?
