Hello,
Do you have any plans to have integration with HP's Quality Center (formerly Test Director, also called Application Lifecycle management (ALM)) in the near future?
Thank you

Can I Rename a CONFIG File? The namespace of one of our projects has changed, and this will require a rename to one of our CONFIG files. How should I do this?
I'd like to not lose the CONFIG file history.

Thanks,
Matthew

I'm trying to add users to our BuildMaster installation. I went to the Admin page and clicked "User Accounts & Log-Ins". We are using LDAP integration. Since we are a large corporation, we have thousands of AD accounts and groups in our domain. I cannot view all of them from the Users page. The table of users stops at about 1000. I've also noticed that not all our AD Groups are displayed on the Edit User page.

Now, I was able to manually build the Edit User hyperlink to be able to add the User I need, but I wanted to let you know that this is a challenge for us. I'm not sure how you would sole this (perhaps with some search functionality instead of display all results of a query), but I'd like to see some improved LDAP / AD integration features in a future release.

Thanks very much, and have a great day.

I just added a step to one of my project's workflows (DEV) as we realized we needed a new environment. I then tried to update the CONFIG files to add the text for the new environment, and I found I could not add another instance to the CONFIG file. What do you think of adding a feature to allow another instance to the CONFIG files? That way, I don't have to create a new CONFIG file and lose the history of the new one. I'd really rather not manually change the database...

Thanks,
Matthew

We recently established a standard in our organization that custom developed applications will follow a Release Numbering Scheme of Major.Minor.Revision. We currently have a few projects in BuildMaster where the Release Numbering Scheme is set to Major.Minor. Can I change the scheme for those projects, or would I need to create new ones?

We use redmine as our company wide issue tracker. I saw its not on your list of currently supported issue trackers. Is it possible to integrate with it or for me to simply do it myself?

Hi,

I have my solution with more than 100 projects. I ideally would like to do something as what my current build scripts or VS does. Currently, I just build the solution file and each projects outputs to its respective 'bin\Release' folder. I then simply package the executables based on their files in the output dir which is bin\Release for each project.

I am trying to achieve the same with BM but could not do this in the same way how I can do this in VS. In BM, if I build my solution with any action (either build .Net project or MSBuild action), always the OutDir defined in BM, makes all the projects' output go in to the same, single OutDir folder. All projets in the entire solution build in to single output folder. So, ideally, to prepare the deployable components, I first need to build the solution (to check for any build errors) and then have to individually build projects, so I can sepcify individual output folder for each build action !

This seems so basic but may be I am missing something and could not get to meaningfully build my solution.

Is this possible at all ? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

I am evaluating BM for my team and having no way to get through this.

I build a exe. project (using Build .NET Project action or MSBuild action) and this is set up as an X86 project (Target Platforms - X86)since it contains some references to unmanaged code and does some Pinvoke stuff. This project refers to other projects which are built with 'Any Cpu' settings. (Target Platform- Any Cpu).

When I build this X86 executable project, I get an eror as 'Output path is not defined for all configruations in the the 'Any Cpu' project. No output path for Release and X86' in the referenced project. '

It works fine when I build the solution in VS. But with BM, again, I cannot build solution because I just cannot set bin\debug of all projects as the target dirs of respective projects and hence all the projects' output to a fixed single target dir folder. Hence, I had to go with building projects that need to be deployed but in this case stuck up with this output path issue !

How do I get around this. I am really stuck up having tried several options to build this project !

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

I have a question about proget.

Does it allow to secure Feed with user/password ? (like in TeamCity, when someone is trying to list or download packages from NuGet using NuGet Gui or Conrole they are asked for password (it is simple auth) ?

We are evaluating using BuildMaster for our team and have some questions when comparing it to our current automated deployment approach.

We would typically like to configure a deployment plan that is consistent (i.e. the same) for a number of separate environments. When we deploy an application we would typically like to select which database and target server we would like to deploy to, and have the deployment complete the same steps, but just change the target server and database connection.

It appears that with BuildMaster we would have the following limitations:

  1. We would need to setup a separate deployment plan for each server that we want to target.
  2. We could not share/link action groups because the actions within the group would be run on a specific target server, not parameterized in some way.
  3. We would need to copy an action group to share the same actions for a separate target server, then edit each action in the group to change the target server (note that some actions would likely run on a build server rather than a target server too).

With a lot of servers involved, if these steps are required it would make it difficult to manage.

An alternative would seem to be that if we could tie the selection of a target server and database connection to variables most of these limitations would be eliminated.

Are we missing something when considering BuildMaster's capabilities? If not, would use of variables for changing the target server or database connection be something that may be included in a future release perhaps?

Thanks!

Is there an example somewhere of how to create an extension Database action? We have been able to create and install a C# component to implement an action, but when we attempt to add a new action it first prompts to select a DB connection, then displays 2 Extension Properties: DatabaseProviderId and ProviderId (which are initially empty).

We would have expected that the Action Form would have provided a selection option for the DB connection, but perhaps we're missing a step to define the contents of the customized Action Form?

Any help would be appreciated!

I would like to automate the step of backing up our Production database and restoring it to my Test database so I can test running the change scripts over production data. There is no concern for prod data in a test environment.

However, I can't figure out how to connect to the Prod database from the TEST or DEV environment deployment plans without creating another connection. Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks,
Matthew

I am using ProGet 1.08. I noticed that some of the packages which are displayed in packages list (using the web interface) are not found when searching for them.
After investigation a little further, I found out that the issue only occurs when the .nupkg file is structured such that in the "lib" folder, the DLLs are located in sub-folder named "net35". The search works fine when for example the sub-folder name is "3.5" or "net40"

My company would like to use BuildMaster to audit configuration file changes. We have a legacy external system that logs all our Change Controls, and I'd like to reference that system using a comment each time I deploy a Change Control. This field would be similar to the comments field used elsewhere in BuildMaster like on builds.

Is there a better place to make this request?

Version 3.2.2 (Build 23)

I am trying to get ClickOnce published application using your MiniCalculator example, but it just doesn't work out of the box.

First of all, by default it can't find MiniCalc.pfx, so it doesn't sign anything (mage.exe says "File not found - "MiniCalc.pfx"), and I get the following error if I try to install the application:


  • Application manifest has either a different computed hash than the one specified or no hash specified at all.
  • File, MiniCalc.exe.manifest, has a different computed hash than specified in manifest.

Second, if I specify just certificate hash without certificate's name and password (both fields are empty and the check box is unchecked), then mage.exe generates "Out of range exception".

Third, if I specify local certificate path (created manually from VS) and password, then mage.exe finally says "MiniCalc.exe.manifest successfully signed" but installation of the application still fails with the same error (see above).

Am I missing something simple?
Are you planning to improve ClickOnce expirience?

In ProGet 1.0.7 (build 7) the Cache Packages option doesn't seem to work. Pre-caching packages works fine, and they get stored in C:\ProgramData\ProGet\Packages\Default ok, but for all packages not explicitly pre-cached, ProGet will retrieve the package from the connector and not save it.

Is this normal?

Hi

What we are trying to do is kick off two other application , a web service app and then a web app.
If we run the two apps individual , ie create release, build ext and promote .. All works fine.
If we create a new app with the same workflow steps (internal, stage, prod)

  • In app for Internal we have two new “Create new build actions” for the web service and web app ..
  • On the second stage we have two promote build actions for the web service / web site . ie from internal to stage

When we run the new app , ie create release/ build.. the first stage passes ie build to internal, then if we promote we see the web service build and then get a strange error

Build 1 for Nebula And Members 4.4 (27/07/2012 1:51:06 AM)
Action Group 1: Deploy To Stage
Action 1: Force Build in Nebula from Internal to Staging.
Preparing remote servers for execution...
Preparation complete.
Initializing Action...
Initialization Complete. Executing...
Build #52 of Nebula (4.24) is currently in Staging; expected Internal
Execution Complete. Finalizing...
Finalization Complete.

Are we doing something wrong , is this supported ?
