Project groups

Several important improvements and bug fixes have been made in project groups feature.

  • projects hierarchy is shown on Administration -> Projects page the same way as it shown in all projects popup
  • configure visible projects dialog has become aware of project hierarchy
  • projects hierarchy is shown on Administration -> Disk usage page
  • projects hierarchy is shown in all drop downs where a list of projects or configurations is displayed
  • investigations page for a project also shows all investigations from sub projects. The same applies to muted problems page, current problems, build chains, project statistics and project change log. All these pages will show sub projects too.
  • notification rule defined for a project will be effective for sub projects too
  • builds schedule page for a project shows schedule from sub projects too

External ids for build configuration and template

It is now possible to define external id for build configuration or template. It works the same way as external id for project, i.e. it is used in URLs instead of internal id, and it is used in configuration files. However with build configuration external ids add some additional benefits:

  • if you're using dependency parameters, you can use external ids there instead of cryptic btXXX: dep.<my build configuration external id>.build.number
  • you can access build artifacts using URL like this: http://<host>/repository/download/<my build configuration external id>/lastSuccessful/
  • external id can be used when build is triggered by HTTP request and in REST requests

Read more about using external ids when accessing server by HTTP in our documentation: Accessing Server by HTTP, Patterns For Accessing Build Artifacts

Configuration files changes

We continue refactoring configuration files storage on disk under TeamCity data directory. This EAP brings two important changes:

  • from now on build configuration internal id is no longer stored in project configuration files, external id is used instead, the same applies to build configuration template.
  • since all VCS roots now belong to projects we decided to remove global vcs-roots.xml file and move vcs root configuration to corresponding projects.

Meta runner

Queued build page

Dependencies progress has been added on queued build page, you can now see estimates for all dependencies in one place.

Branch filters in triggers

VCS and Schedule trigger have got new setting: Branch filter. With help of branch filter you can limit the set of branches where automatic triggering must be performed. Read more about branch filters in our documentation: Working with Feature Branches#Triggers


  • Server id - we need some way to remove duplicate usage statistics reports from our database. To be able to do it we introduced unique identifier - server id, which is sent together with usage statistics report. This id is completely anonymous and does not have machine specific information in it.
  • No labels
