Post Build Cleanup
Did you ever run out of disk space on your build machine, because there were so many sources and binaries from previous build runs? Then this extension is for you!
By default, the clean option of a build definition deletes files before the build starts. Thus, every build leaves behind sources and binaries on your build machine, and those files accumulate and eat up your disk space. If you're not running incremental builds, those files are not needed after the build has finished.
The Post Build Cleanup task deletes unwanted files from your build agent, after your build has run, thus, saving precious disk space.
You can find the changes notes for this task here.
If you need help with the extension or run into issues, please contact us at email@example.com.
Adding the Task to a Build Definition
The Post Build Cleanup task (in task category Utility) must always be the last (enabled) task in your build definition!
Behavior of the Task
The task behavior is directly linked to the clean options you select in your build definition's Repository settings. In the new build UI the clean option has been moved to the Get sources task in the Tasks list.
