Inherited build steps configuration improvements

Ability to redefine inherited build step settings

In the current TeamCity version, if a build step is defined in a template, it is shown as read-only in a build configuration inheriting this build step. If some customization is required, then a parameter reference has to be defined for some settings in the template, and a specific value should be set for this parameter in the build configuration. However, this workaround works for text fields only.

In this EAP it is finally possible to customize an inherited build step, i.e. it is possible to change every setting of the inherited build step without the need to introduce parameters.

Note that the redefined build step preserves its place in the steps order. 
Note that overriding any property in an inherited BC will fix all the other values in the resulting build config, and changing other properties of the same feature in a template will not take affect. It concerns build steps, triggers, build features, artifact deps, agent reqs, failure conditions.
 

Ability to have pre- and post-steps in a template

There is sometimes a need to define a common build step in a template, so that this step will be executed either before all build configuration steps or after them.

...

Note: you still can have a completely custom order of steps in a build configuration inherited from a template. 

Enforced settings

Now it’s possible to assign a template to some project to be Enforced Settings. As for default templates all build configurations under this project will inherit parameters, options and build features from the enforced settings but such settings could not be overwritten or disabled by build configuration own settings nor by template. Other data in enforced settings won’t be applyed for now (runners, triggers, dependencies, etc).

...

If there are some enforced settings in a project and another template is assigned as enforced settings in a subproject – the second will have higher priority and will overwrite settings from the first one.

PowerShell Core support

  • Cross-platform PowerShell (PowerShell Core) is now supported on Windows, MacOS and Linux
  • Side-by-side installations of PowerShell Desktop and PowerShell Core is supported under Windows

Docker plugin improvements

  • Docker wrapper now forms build step environment more correctly and passes the relevenat environment variables to the container. TW-53498
  • Docker wrapper can now use Gradle and Maven provided by the Docker images in the corresponding build steps. TW-54066TW-51179

Re-run build action improvements

Now when re-running a build, TeamCity preserves all the custom parameters of this build and its dependencies as of the time of the original run.

Besides that, on the dependencies tab, there is now an additional option to rerun the failed/failed to start or cancelled dependencies of the build:

Shared resources in composite builds

Since this EAP shared resources can be locked not only for regular builds, but for composite builds as well. A lock on the specified resource will be acquired when a composite build starts (when the first build of the composite build chain starts); the lock will be released when the composite build finishes (the last build in its chain is finished).

...

Adding a lock on a composite build is done the same way it is done for a regular build: it can be done by adding the Shared Resources build feature.

Other improvements

  • Browsing of artifacts inside archives is now supported for all external artifacts storages too (previously this feature was available only if artifacts were stored in the internal artifacts storage).
  • Java 9 and Java 10 can now be used to run an agent.

  • Commit Status Publisher now allows an admin to configure custom values for success and failure instead of +1 and -1 respectively. This label is also configurable. Note that since TeamCity 2018.1 Gerrit 2.6. is the minimal version supported by Commit Status Publisher.

  • Build chains page has got new grouping option: it groups together in a single node all of the build configurations which are not related to the current context.
  • Duplicates finder (.NET) and Inspections (.NET) runners have been renamed to Duplicates finder (ReSharper) and Inspections (ReSharper) respectively. You can now select the platform bitness for InspectCode when using Inspections (ReSharper).
  • All fixed issues
