How to change state of TFS 2015 if build has warnings?

0 votes

I am using TFS 2015 UI to modify a build. I want the TFS build to be in failed state in case any warnings come up in the solution that is being built.

I was using this guide https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd647551(v=vs.120).aspx#template_create.

Here step 3 says that the Edit Build Definition will allow the user to download the existing build but it instead opens browser and allows OOTB editing

 enter image description here

Is there any way I can do this or any alternative?

To access the TFS Build Definition can access the IIRC through the database since you're using XAML buildl definition. You'll need to pull it out of the TFS configuration db.

You should try to edit the msbuild parameters inside the build definition and cause failure if warning comes up. This can be done through TreatWarningsAsErrors msbuild property
