Trigger Build Task
This build task enables the chaining of builds within TFS.
Supported TFS Versions
The Build Task is supported for both VSTS and TFS on-Premises from Version 2015 Update 2 upwards.
If you are having problems installing the extension on you on Prem TFS and getting the following error message:
A new Task "Cancel Builds" is available that can be used to cancel builds that were triggered with the Trigger Build Task in any previous step
The latest release notes can be found on Github.
Version 3 now available
This version of the tasks are making use now of the official node.js library from Microsoft to access the VSTS/TFS instead of relying on a custom implementation. This brings the advantage of having many things built-in by design, being more uptodate with the current state of the REST API and making it easier to extend functionality.
The basic functionality was retested and worked fine. However there might be some cases where some things now look or behave a bit different (for example the logging). If you experience anything please let me know by creating a new issue on github.
Updating from Version 2.* to 3.*
There are only slight interface changes. If a custom TFS/VSTS Server address is used, the Team Project has to be specified now in a seperate variable instead of being part of the URL. If you don't use a custom URL, everything stays the same.
Updating from Version 1.* to 2.0.0
In order to update your Task from Version 1.* to the new Version 2.0.0, you have to manually switch the Version in the Build Definition:
