Previously described Fail build on metric change feature is not the only new way of controlling build status and detecting build failures. In TeamCity 7.0 we introduce one more useful feature that allows to mark build as failed, in case when certain line is met in build log.
Note, that you can instruct TeamCity to look for a line containing or matching a Java Regular Expression regexp text that appears/doesn’t appear during the build. When the condition is set, the interface looks like:
Here’s how a build failure looks when caused by such condition:
The feature is not completed yet, so your comments and feedback are very much welcome. To try it live, install TeamCity 7.0 EAP build, we recommend the next EAP build which is about to be released in the nearest future.
