The following protocols are supported:

Known Issues

  • Tagging is not supported over HTTP protocol (JGit limitation)
  • For SSH to work you should have correctly configured $HOME\.ssh-* Specify references to the keys in appropriate host sections (keys with passphrases do not work yet)
    • You will need to specify "StrictHostKeyChecking" to "no" if you do not want for ssh to fail when connecting new hosts.
    • The file could be used to specify host aliases
  • Plugin creates temporary bare repositories in ~/.BuildServer/system/caches/git this repositories are not cleaned up automatically. This directory are shared for different VCS roots with the same URL. See teamcity.remote configuration property to see URL for which directory is used.

    • C:\Program Files\Git\bin
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin
    • C:\cygwin\bin
  • Unix (git)
    • /usr/local/bin
    • /usr/bin
    • /opt/local/bin
    • /opt/bin

If the git is located in non-standard location or if you have serveral git distributions installed and want select a specific one, specify full path to git executable the using property system.git.executable.path in on the agent. For example:
