This is the first public release that uncovers one of the major highlights of upcoming TeamCity 3.0: per-project user roles.
User can be assigned a "role" in any TeamCity project, or a global role (a role not specific to any particular project). Currently, user roles can be edited only in user's profile, see "Roles and Permissions" tab.
The set of available roles is fixed. Here is the list with a brief description:
Can view the builds of a project, browse build results including artifacts and list of changes (but not file content), set notifications for the project, view queued builds of the project, etc.
Includes all actions available to "Project viewer" and additionally, can run/stop builds, run personal builds, browse file contents (via web diff view), reorder the build of the project in the queue, browse build configuration settings.
Includes all actions available to "Project developer" and additionally has access to administration area where can change settings of the project, create/delete and change settings of project's build configurations, set-up clean-up rule for the project's build configurations.
All projects viewer
Global role. Analogous to "Guest" access in older versions. The same as "Project viewer", but can view all the projects in the system.
All projects developer
Global role. Has "Project developer" access to all of the projects in the system.
Global role. Allows to enable/disable agents.
All projects administrator
Global role. Has "Project administrator" access to all of the projects in the system, can create and delete projects, manage VCS roots shared between projects. Includes "Agent manager" role.
Global role. Includes "All projects administrator" role. All administration tasks (including editing of user profile and roles) are available for this role.
On upgrading (do not forget to backup your data before upgrade!), usual users will get "All projects developer" role assigned and administrators will get "System administrator" role.
Please note that users will not get any roles in the newly created projects. If user does not have "All projects viewer/developer" role, please do not forget to assign the necessary roles via user's profile page.
Stay tuned for the more powerful UI to ease group operations for assigning user roles.
Test-level Duration Charts
In addition to the list of unit tests run in a build, you can now view any test duration across the builds via a chart available in the tests list:
Ability to Mark Sources by VCS Label
You can instruct TeamCity to put a label to the version control for the sources used in the build. See Version Control Settings page of a build configuration settings. Available options are whether to mark all or only successful builds and label format that can include the build number.
Supported version controls are CVS and Perforce. Feel free to request support for other version controls.
Duplicates and Inspections runner for Maven2 projects
Now you can run Inspections and Duplicates build (powered by IntelliJ IDEA) over Maven2 project.
Extended Processes Dump
In addition to Windows support introduced in previous EAP release (Java and .NET processes), we are adding support for Linux with 1.5+ JDK (any other platform that has jstack JDK utility should be supported too).
UI is also improved featuring build processes tree.
- Statistics charts for number of found inspections and duplicates
- Statistics is shown not only for newly run builds, but also for builds in the history (if you have large number of builds in history, expect server slow down just after start)
- Setting the frequency of querying the version controls for changes (adjustable on server-wide or single VCS root levels)
- Ability to request immediate changes checking (via a button on a Build Configuration page)
- Administration page with the list of all VCS roots configured in the TeamCity (see sidebar in the Administration area)
- In addition to the build number, you can now search by tags and project/build configuration names (no need to type the full name, just the first characters will work OK)
- RSS feeds can now be generated only for failed/successful builds and build with changes of particular user. See feed "customize" link on My Settings and Tools page.
- Remote run support for StarTeam, ClearCase and Visual Source Safe from IntelliJ IDEA.
- Support for using different URLs for accessing the same Subversion server from TeamCity server and IDEs (no extra configuration required)
- TFS communications performance is improved
