Using the piece for code coverage with gated check-in on TFS 2012. It's working nicely.
Not too hard to figure out for this long time TFS user, first time TFS extender.

A bit of background with editing workflows helped out.

Also, editing the metadata to get the code coverage variables displaying nicely in the build editor is a bit of shiny polish.

Some of the documentation is a outdated, but still can be used to figure out what to do.

It would help to have a Vertical Scroll so I can see all the builds. I would like to export to a csv file. The column heading for the Type should be changed to Trigger and the fields under the column should match the selections for Trigger. Overall; I rate it as a C-.

Works as a charm! A "must have" to work efficiently with builds.
The Clone to branch is awesome !

  • TFS credentials window pops up everytime I open the build manager
    2 Posts | Last post Sat 8:25 AM
    • My TFS credentials are saved in windows credentials manager but since the last update, the build manager has been prompting me to re-enter my credentials everytime I attempt to use it. Its annoying and cumbersome. I'm going to downgrade to the previous update. Is anyone else having this issue?
    • I've not heard of this issue. What version are you on?
  • Generate Build Notes Automatically as part of build
    2 Posts | Last post Sat 8:24 AM
    • I would like to be able to generate the Build Notes as part of the builds automatically, this way I could email them out when the build finishes. Is that supported?
    • No. The 2013 version may get this once the console app is added in the next few days. No ETA on adding that command though.
  • Not able to hide definition's
    2 Posts | Last post February 28, 2014
    • I am able to disable the build definitions but those are still visible under the builds section with x symbol on them. is there a way I can completely hide them from builds section in team explorer and enable them or make them visible whenever I wanted.
    • I don't believe there is a way to hide build definitions completely from view. You can disallow viewing/editing of the contents and queuing, but not from view in Team Explorer
  • Hierarchical Build Ordering
    1 Posts | Last post April 03, 2013
    • We have build definitions for our branches for each of our products. So product A has Branch 1 BD, Branch 2 BD, and Trunk BD and Product B has a very similar setup. Does this tool allow the build definitions to be ordered or moved into some kind of hierarchical tree fashion so that I can group my builds based on some kind of tag or common attribute? If not would you care to implement a feature that does this? I was about to set out on building a tool very similar to this with the aforementioned feature, but I hate to reinvent the wheel.
  • Link in Team Explorer is Disabled

    • I just installed version 1.4.0.8 and found that the link in team explorer is not a link. It is greyed out.
  • Bug? Missing vertical scroll bar
    2 Posts | Last post December 09, 2012
    • I've got a Team Project with rather a lot of build definitions in and unfortunately, I'm not seeing a vertical scroll bar, and neither is my colleague. Have just installed 1.4.0.6 (VS2012). VS2010 version was awesome BTW.
      
      Thanks.
    • This (embarrasing) issue has been fixed in the 1.4.0.7 version 
      
      Thanks

  • Clone a definition that's NOT to a branch?
    2 Posts | Last post September 24, 2012
    • I just need to clone a build definition, asis, without any assumptions that I'm branching code or otherwise.  Is it possible?
      
    • No, at the moment the extension only implements the branch scenario.
      
      The reason for this is that there is already a Clone Build Definition command available in Team Explorer that basically supports your scenario.
      
      Thanks
