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.
The full test name is used to generate an internal
testNameId which is used to compare to compare tests between consequent builds or match tests across different build configurations.
If a test cannot be parsed in the form above, TeamCity still tries to extract <suite name> from the full test name for the filtering on the Tests tab, and treats everything after the suite a non-parsable test name.
Reporting additional test data
Since TeamCity 2018.2, it is possible to attach extra information to the tests, using a
testMetadata service message.
More details on this is available on a separate page.

category attribute examples are "Style violations", "Calling contracts" etc.
description (mandatory) limited by 4000 characters. The description can also be in html, e.g.
where all the attributes can have either numeric or textual values:

line - (optional) line of the file, integer
additional attribute - can be any attribute,
SEVERITY is often used here, with one of the following values ( mind the upper case):
The process of publishing artifacts process can affect the build because it consumes network traffic and some disk/CPU resources (should be pretty negligible for not large files/directories).
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:
