Using BuildMaster 4.1.3 (originally noticed in 4.0.7), the View Debug Logs security option doesn't seem to work the way I expect. We have some passwords stored in system variables which we do not want to be visible to all developers. Since those passwords are printed in plain text in the debug log, we took away the "View Debug Logs" permission from the Developer group. On testing, our developers are still able to go to the Execution Details page and click the [log] link to view the detailed log (including the password).

Is this a bug or does that option do something different than I expect? For now we are working around the problem by just taking away the View Execution Details permission, but we would prefer to allow our developers to get to that page but not view the logs.

I'm just wondering if there's a best practice for naming applications in BuildMaster. Do people tend to name the BuildMaster application to match their solution name exactly, namespace and all (we're a .NET shop)?

For instance, we have a solution named "AbcCorp.AwesomeSolution" that contains projects like "AbcCorp.Services" and "AbcCorp.Workflows". Do we name the application "AbcCorp.AwesomeSolution" and configure one deployable per project, or something more friendly like "Awesome Solution"? Are there any benefits or drawbacks to one approach vs. the other?

I’ve managed to get ProGet running using an existing SQL Server and IIS on Win Server 2012. I also was able to switch to LDAP Authentication.

There seems to be a problem which may be "by design" but it's really critical for us. Our environment looks like that:

We have a corporate domain, let’s say company.com and a local development domain, let’s assume it dev.local. There is a one-way trust between the domains and the development machines with the visual studios and all the stuff are located in dev.local (lets say devmachine.dev.local). The developers log in to devmachine.dev.local with their company account (e.g. John@company.com or company\John).

That’s the scenario. What I need now is to assign the developers rights in ProGet that lives in the dev.local domain. Question now is if ProGet supports to assign rights to the user John@company.com via a domain trust while ProGet lives dev.local.

Using dev\John for assignment works without any problem but using company\John results in nothing (no error message, no function, just silently nothing). What I've also done is to create a group in dev.local (Security Group / Domain local) and I've added company\John to this group. I was able to use the group for assignment in ProGet but it still seems that company\John is not recognized by ProGet.

Would be great if you could let me know if that’s a scenario that I can expect to be supported by ProGet. I hope so since that’s not a completely uncommon scenario in big companies to have separated account- and resource domains.

So far so good.

Now, I still have the following problem:

I can open my browser, go to the ProGet server and login with windows authentication using my domain account. Works. When I open the browser a second time, navigating to the ProGet site, I always get that:

The only thing I found that helps is to reset the IIS and then, I can log in again (once! Then, another iisreset is required).

Do you have to specify both of them? Should I point them both to the same repository or is it supposed to be setup so that you have a build master staging repository and then the main repository?

Our repos are on the same machine that we are running BuildMaster on. How do we set it up correctly?

I am currently evaluating ProGet as a replacement for an existing NuGet.Server installation. I have a package that contains content files. When I view the package that was created and then subsequently uploaded the package contains the content folder and the content files. However when I download the package from ProGet the content files are not present; it appears they have been stripped. Is this something ProGet doesn't support or am I missing something?

I'm trying to find a way to mark all packages in a feed as a beta version by appending "-beta" to the published package version. I tried creating a custom package store by inheriting from DirectoryPackageStore. I was able to change the version and I found the file in the storage directory with the beta version, but there wasn't any data in the database. Is it possible to easily do this for all packages in a feed?

I'm using ProGet as an aggregator of multiple other NuGet servers. It looks like ProGet doesn't supports adding a teamcity nuget server (the build-in nuget server in TeamCity). When I do that and search for packages through the ProGet UI, I get the following error in the top: "There was an error with one or more of your connectors: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.".

Do you know if there are any problems using TeamCity's public NuGet feed with ProGet?

When I try to modify an existing TFS issue tracker (see image), I get a blank validation error. It doesn't seem to be related to the change I'm making, as it appears even if I make no changes and try to save. I've tried resetting all of the fields in different ways and this always prevents me from saving any changes. The only way I can get it to work is to delete the issue tracker and recreate it, and reconfigure all my applications to use the new one.

I've set up a bunch of build actions and I need to specify the Rebuild target for a specific project, but I don't have the option to specify the target when setting up the MSBuild project. According to this page I should have the option. See below:

No MSBuild target :(

Am I missing something?

I've been trying to configure LDAP integration in BuildMaster. When I do a search for a user on the domain that the server is hosted, the user appears in the list. If I search for a user outside of the domain, I am unable to find the user. I've tried adding the domain in the format domain\user and user@domain, but still no luck. What can I do to add the global users?

We have an application with two active releases: 1.4.1 and 1.5.0. The 1.4.1 release is a hotfix of the already-deployed 1.4.0. We also have a SQL change script attached to the application, and tied to release 1.5.0. However, this morning when we executed a build for the 1.4.1 release, the SQL change script for 1.5.0 was executed. I thought by associating the SQL change script to release 1.5.0, it would NOT execute for release 1.4.1, but only for 1.5.0 (or perhaps later releases). Does this not work the way I think it does, or is there a bug?

This is what our environments look like right now:

DEV - 1.5.0 (change script for 1.5.0 executed - good)
TEST - 1.5.0 (change script for 1.5.0 executed - good)
QA - 1.5.0 (change script for 1.5.0 executed - good)
STAGE - 1.4.1 (change script for 1.5.0 executed - not good)
PROD - 1.4.0 (we haven't promoted anything here yet)

Hi,

I have been experiencing some odd behaviour with BuildMaster - which I will try to put succinctly, and see if you have an explanation or can give me some advice.

It seems I have to re-create some actions or action groups every so often in order for them to pick up the correct src\wrk directory or a sub directory within that. Sometimes moving around Actions within Action Groups fixes the issue.

For example, today I had a msbuild action that could not find the solution in the SRC directory. When I looked at the directories after the build failed, there was no SRC directory, only a wrk directory. If I copied WRK directory to SRC, Msbuild ran successfully in a command window. When I moved the Build action to the action group above, it worked. I then created a new action group, moved the build action to it and it worked - even though as far as I can tell there was no difference between the new action group and the original failing group.

Another issue I had was, I tried sharing some Action groups from an Application that I set up as a template, with the intention of sharing the action groups across applications. But I when I shared those groups with an existing application, I found that the shared Action group seem to be depositing files in a different directory to non-shared action groups.

Is there something I am missing? Is this some consequence of a set of actions that were created in an earlier version of BuildMaster.

Hi,

When trying to debug into a NuGet package, it immediately jumps to the next line. If I try to force the debugger to step into the line of code, Visual Studio(2012) displays the No Symbols Loaded page. Under the 'Symbol load information' section, it displays PDB format is obsolete.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm attempting to create a source+symbols package in ProGet, and I'm being told that my user doesn't have permission to overwrite a package. In the documentation, it is clearly stated that *.symbol.nupkg are supported (generated with the -symbols option to nuget pack):

Debug Into Internal NuGet Packages With ProGet:

The developers who write the shared library have the choice to build either two NuGet packages as documented in the NuGet packaging conventions or they can include all files in a single package. If you chose to use the two package convention one package must contain the required library and supporting files and the second must contain the symbols (PDB files) and it should also include the source code files placed in a folder named "src". ProGet will only display the package that contains the library in its feeds, the symbol/source package will not be visible as long as it follows the NuGet naming convention (.symbols.nupkg).

When I attempt to publish the .symbols.nupkg file (after pushing the main .nupkg), however, I get this:

'There was an error processing the request: The package mypackage.0.22 already exists and the user Anonymous does not have the Feeds_OverwritePackage privilege.'.

I'm attempting to upgrade my ProGet installation to 2.2.10, and on the "Review settings" page (I think it's the 3rd page), the installer tells me that the SQL Server login failed for the user that is in use by the application. I'm fairly confident that the installer is reading this information from either the Web.config or app.config for the service, because I reset the password, changed those two, and restarted the service, and now the installer has a new password in the connection string which is displayed. It still doesn't work.

I have an underscore (_) in the password, as well as some numbers, are these causing the problem? I'm skeptical, because I'd assume that the connection string is being handed to the underlying code as-is, without parsing or modification.

What's the deal, then? Why can the service and website successfully use this connection string and the installer cannot?

Hi,
I would lile to know how the web.config transformation occurs and then stored as different instances of it (For e.g. Integration, Testing and Production). In my MVC project, I have three different versions of web.config files (DEV, QA and PROD).

Also when MSBuild runs, It puts the bin folder in the drop location and creates a folder called _PublishedWebsites which contains the actual code that I would like to have on the drop location. How can I achieve that?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,
I have serached over the all the Q&A and couldn't find my answer anywhere. I am hosting the Buildmaster through IIS and I have a weird problem. Everytine, I run the build, I get an error message that my AssemblyInfo.cs file permission is denied. I have make sure that all permission for the application pool user is correct. the problem is, _SVCTMP folder has a check mark read only checked and when I uncheck it, the build execution goes fine.. but after completion of it, the Builmaster or IIS make it read-only back again so that the build fails again when I run the next time.

Can anyone please suggest me the solution?

Thanks
