Webinar recording: What’s New in TeamCity 2017.1

The recording of our May 3 webinar, What’s New in TeamCity 2017.1, is now available on the JetBrains YouTube channel.

In this webinar, Wes Higbee goes over the new and exciting features of the latest release of TeamCity, TeamCity 2017.1.

Q&A

Q: Do you support Artifactory by default?
A: There is a plugin from JFrog which provides support for Artifactory.

Q: How would this work on an in-house BitBucket instance?
A: TeamCity supports connections to Bitbucket cloud only, so there is no way to create connection to Bitbucket server. But other ways of creating projects are available. If you have URL to repository – you can just create project / build configuration from this URL.

Q: Can you have a manual build step with an approval button?
A: It is possible to configure build configuration to show some question when build of this configuration is triggered. this can be done with help of typed parameters: https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/TCD10/Typed+Parameters

Q: Can we use SonarQube/CodeNarc metrics to take a call on whether the next step in a build pipeline should be executed or not?
A: This could be implemented as a plugin. Plugin can set some kind of a precondition for build start.

Q: Any plans for supporting Docker as a specific step in build procedure? E.g. using containers for building.
A: Yes, there are plans. There is a separate plugin in the works. But if you want you can always run a step in docker using command line step.

Q: Is there an option to move the artifacts from native to Azure on selected builds which is already built?
A: No, not yet. On the other hand if you enable Azure, artifacts of old builds will still be available.

Q: Do all builds go to the artifact path when building different branches? How to distinguish between what each branch is producing the artifacts?
A: Actually, each build has its own forlder for artficats, so there are no conflicts here.

Q: Would the server remember all of its artifcats storages? The ones that are active and the ones that are not active?
A: Yes it will. Unless you remove the settings, artifacts will still be available.

Q: How does the clean up would act on Azure/S3?
A: Should work the same way as usual cleanup. Artifact patterns should work too.

Q: Can a build agent retrieve an actual value behind a token and put it as an artifact?
A: Build will see the actual value. Tokens are only used for configuration.
