Prior to TeamCity 9.1, one test could have been reported from within another test.
In the later versions,starting another test finishes the currently started test in the same "flow". To still report tests from within other tests, you will need to specify another flowId in the nested test service messages.
All the other test messages (except for
If using the Ant's echo task to output the messages, make sure to include the flowId attribute with the same value in all the messages related to the same test/test suite, as otherwise they will not be processed correctly otherwise.
It is highly recommended to ensure that the pair of
test suite +
test name is unique within the build.
For advanced TeamCity test-related features to work, test names should not deviate from one build to another (a single test must be reported under the same name in every build). Include absolute paths in the reported test names is strongly discouraged.

TeamCity allows changing the build status text from the build script. Unlike progress messages, this change persists even after a build has finished.
You can also change the build status of a failing build to success.
Prior to TeamCity 7.1, this service message could be used for changing the build status to failed. In the later TeamCity versions, the buildProblem service message is to be used for that.
- Using a service message in a build script directly
- Providing data using the teamcity-info.xml file
To report build statistics using service messages: Specify a '
buildStatisticValue' service message with the following format for each statistics value you want to report:
