The build queue is a list of builds that were triggered and are waiting to be started. TeamCity will distribute them to compatible build agents as the agents become idle. The build is assigned to the agent only when it is started on the agent, no pre-assignment is made while the build still waits in the build queue.
When a build is triggered, firstly it is placed into the build queue, and, when a compatible agent becomes idle, TeamCity will run the build. The list of builds waiting to be run can be viewed on the Build Queue tab. This tab displays the following information:
You can reorder the builds in queue manually, remove build configurations or personal builds from queue, and, if you have System Administrator permissions, you can assign different priorities to build configurations, which will affect their position in the queue. Learn more.
