How to: Delete a Build Type

Team Foundation Build uses build types to manage the conditions under which a single solution or a set of solutions are built within a team project workspace. Build configurations are deleted using Team Explorer as described in the following procedure.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must either belong to the Team Project Contributors security group, or you must have the Check Out permission set to Allow. To check in the deletion you must have the Check In permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To delete a build type

  1. On the View menu, click Other Windows and then click Source Control Explorer. In the Folder pane of the Source Control Explorer, locate the build type that you want to delete in the ${Team Project}\Team Build Types\{Build Type Name}\TFSBuild.proj tree. The build type is represented by the TFSBuild.proj file, but you need to delete the folder as well.

  2. With the desired build type folder selected, choose Delete from the shortcut menu. You will also need to check in the changes that were made to the directory.

  3. The build type entry is deleted and the action removes all underlying XML files.
