Is there a way to customize the subject line in a notifier email? In our legacy build system, we send out emails at the end of a build with SUCCEEDED or FAILED prominently displayed in the subject line, so you can see at a glance what the status is, saving you in many cases from having to read the body of the email itself.


I know BuildMaster supports the typical custom software development scenario in which developers are producing applications that run on databases, etc. However, could BuildMaster support the deployment of commercial, off the shelf (COTS) software configurations? For example, could we use it to track deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM across different environments? Or Dynamics AX? In this scenario, we aren't deploying CRM or AX itself, but packages of configuration changes.



Hi, I was wondering if BuildMaster Supports .Net extensions build on .Net 4.5 Framework. I did develop the extension in .Net 4.5 version since its references other binaries built on the same version. Now, when I install it in BuildMaster I got an error.


What that error means? I keep seeing this at registration page.


keep getting this error when running my mspec test in gallio.

I want to send a message with the compare report in it.

How can I send the comparison report of a build in a message?




I am running ProGet 2.1.4.

I have a feed named "default". The feed is configured to enable symbol/source server. When I browse into the URL that proget specifies as the symbol server URL, I get a "Request handler not found (404)" error with following details:

/symbols/default does not map to any handlers...



I'm working on a execution plan that needs to start a process remotely on one of our servers. This process is intended (among other tasks) to monitor some server activity, so needs to be visible for anyone looking at the computer screen.

When I execute the command (this is just an example):

Start-Process "notepad.exe"

I found looking at the task manager that the process have been started correctly, but it's not a windowed instance, it's hidden.

Any solutions?

Thanks in advance.


How do you put a carriage return / line feed character into a variable?

I would like to send out an email listing the components that have been deployed (not all components are in each release), eg:

This release consists of:

  • Client
  • Server
  • etc

I populate a variable for each item that I deploy, eg:

CLIENT_MSG = * Server configuration build

And set the message body as follows:
This release consists of:


Unfortunately the <br> is not valid. I could just put each variable on a separate line but I would end up with a empty lines for those components not included... Not a big deal but if there is an easy way to get around this.



I am trying to add an Oracle database provider for my application in Buildmaster.

The connection string to the Oracle database. The standard format for this is:

DATA SOURCE=myServerAddress; USER ID=myUsername; PASSWORD=myPassword

I tried the following ways:

DATA Source=<value from tnsnames.ora>;USER ID=<myusername>;PASSWORD=<mypassword>;

Gave me an error:

An unexpected error occurred while attempting to connect. ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified 

DATA Source=<server ip:port:servicename>;USER ID=<myusername>;PASSWORD=<mypassword>;

Gave an error
ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist

DATA Source=@<server ip:port:servicename>;USER ID=<myusername>;PASSWORD=<mypassword>;

Gave an error

An unexpected error occurred while attempting to connect. ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified 

I am able to connect to the required Oracle through SQL Plus. So the value in tnsnames.ora in Oracle is correct.

What am I missing?



Repro steps:

  • upload a package to ProGet default feed
  • execute the following command:

NuGet.exe delete TestPackage 1.0.0 <api_key> -Source <nuget_feed_url> -Verbosity detailed

Expected result: if the user has required permissions (Feeds_DeletePackage) the package should be successfully deleted from ProGet

Actual result:

c:\TEMP\test_proget>NuGet.exe delete TestPackage 1.0.0 <api_key> -Source <nuget_feed_url> -Verbosity detailed

TestPackage 1.0.0 will be deleted from the '<nuget_feed_url>'. Would you like to continue? (y/N) y
Deleting TestPackage 1.0.0 from the '<nuget_feed_url>'.
DELETE <nuget_feed_url>/TestPackage/1.0.0

Is there a way we can set up a template that can easily be copied for new applications that we add.

All our projects are more or less the same and require almost identical workflows and steps. Currently you allow "copy action group" but is there a way you can "copy workflow step"?


Some of our deployment actions in BuildMaster may output warning messages in the log files. Is there any way of having BuildMaster notify users that these warnings exist?

Mostly they are items that should be double checked manually but are not things that should fail the build and prevent the deployment from completing.


After deleting a package using the web gui, the feed cannot be displayed anymore until the webserver is restarted.

ProGet will just keep on displaying the "Loading" screen, and sometimes a red "unexpected error" message.


I'm finding that with Nuget 2.7 that some packages can't be found on ProGet when 2.6 works fine. I have a Wireshark trace if you are interested. I'm not sure whose issue it is, your's or Nuget's.


Let's say I defined an environment variable called DatabaseUsername, and in the deployment plan I have a step that uses values from another variable called TargetDatabaseUsername.

My question is can I use the BuildMaster's set variable value to do TargetDatabaseUsername = DatabaseUsername?

I realize I can just overwrite the DatabaseUsername, but I find it confusing to maintain the actions when there is also SourceDatabaseUsername in use.

Btw, I really like the work you guys have done! Looking forward to purchase some upgrade once I figure out all the modules I would need.


Permanently deleting an application seems so drastic. Is there no way I can just hide an application, but still keep the data in case I change my mind?


We want to split who can perform a build to deploy our application to allow anyone to deploy to dev and sit environments, but only members of our production support team to deploy to uat, pre-prod and prod.

I know I could add privilege for each environment somebody can deploy to but that seems like a lot of work. Is there an easier way?



We're trying to build and publish a nugget package using buildmaster. The package we're trying to build has dependencies on some other nugget packages (ServiceStack, Raven etc.)

Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to install those nugget packages as the source project is in our TFS and I cannot point to the "packages.config" file to show Buildmaster which nugget packages to download and install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated (especially if it doesn't cost me $99).

I using the 3.7 release, I've added a set variable value action to override an existing environment level variable.

When running the action is marked as succeed - but the build stops at that point.

When I next try to execute a new build it sits on the first action which never completes (I gave up after 5 minutes). I then have to restart the webservice and web application before I can run any builds again.

There seems to be a bug here... but my question is: should I be override variables this way or do I need to get rid of the environment level variables.
