General information

When are you going to release next version?

...

The "project" represents a set of VCS configurations (VCS roots) that contain the source files. A project can contain several build configurations (see #What is the 'build configuration'?).

What is the 'build configuration'?

...

Build agent is a part of TeamCity that actually runs the build. Usually, a build agent corresponds to a separate computer.  When needed, TeamCity chooses a free agent and runs a build on it (see #How are the builds distributed among agents?). A build agent can run only one build at a time.

...

How to create and configure TeamCity projects?

...

When the project is created, you can configure its VCS roots (see How to configure your VCS below) and create build configurations (see #How to set up build configurations?).

How to configure your VCS?

...

For more info on VCS settings, see #How to set up build configurations?.

How to set up build configurations?

...

  • Build's properties and environment variables.
  • Agent requirements that are requirements that a build agent should meet in order to be able to run this build configuration (see #How to configure build agents? and #How are the builds distributed among agents. They are also divided into system properties (system.<varname>) and environment variables (env.<varname>).
  • Build triggering where you can customize due to which events the build should be started and specify build scheduling.

...

Each build has a set of requirements that the agent should meet to run the build (see #How to set up build configurations?). At the same time, each agent has a set of parameters showing which requirements it can meet (see #How to configure build agents?)

When the build server chooses where to run the build, it looks for an agent which parameters match the build requirements.
