How to: Queue and Stop a Build (Team System Web Access)

Visual Studio 2008

You can run builds in Team System Web Access, you can cancel or postpone queued builds, and you can stop or resume builds that are in process.

Before you queue a build by using Team System Web Access, you must first create a build definition in Team Explorer. For more information about how to create a build definition, see How to: Create a Build Definition.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must have the Team Foundation Server Start a build permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To queue a build using an existing build definition

  1. In Team System Web Access, click the arrow next to Project, and then click the appropriate team project.

  2. Click the Build page.

  3. Click Queue Build.

  4. In the Queue Build dialog box, click the arrow next to Build definition, and then click a build definition.

  5. Click the arrow next to Build agent and then click a build agent.

  6. In the Drop folder for this build box, type the folder where the built files and binaries will be stored as soon as the build is completed.

  7. Click the arrow next to Priority and then click a priority for the build.

  8. In the MSBuild command-line arguments (optional) box, you can enter optional MSBuild arguments. For example:

    /flp:v=diag /p:versionToGet="myVersion"
    

    These arguments are specific to the build you are queuing. If you want to use command-line arguments for a given build definition, you must use the response file (.rsp) for that build definition. For more information about how to modify Team Foundation Build files, see Understanding Team Foundation Build Configuration Files. For more information about response files, see MSBuild Response Files.

  9. Click Queue to enter the build into the build queue.

    After you click Queue, the name of the build that you queued appears in the Queued Builds tab of the Builds page. The status of the build is indicated by icons in front of the build name.

For more information, see How to: View Individual Build Reports (Team System Web Access).

You can also use Team System Web Access to stop a build that is already in progress. You can also postpone or cancel a queued build, and resume a postponed build.

To stop a build in progress

  1. To stop the build, click the arrow next to the build name, and then click Stop.

  2. Click OK to confirm that the specified build should be stopped. To keep the build queued, click Cancel.

To postpone, cancel, or resume a queued build

  • To postpone a build, click the arrow next to the queued build name, and then click Postpone.

  • To resume the build, click the arrow next to the postponed build name, and then click Resume.

  • To cancel a build, click the arrow next to the queued build name, and then click Cancel.
