How to Create Multiple Build Types

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

To create multiple build types—for example, Release for Customers or Debug for Test Team—use separate team builds for each build type that interests you.

To create a team build
  1. Open Team Explorer.
  2. Expand the team project for which you want to create a build.
  3. Right-click the Team Builds folder in the tree.
  4. Select New Team Build Type…
  5. Specify the name of the new team build type and click Next.
  6. Select the projects you wish to build, this should include the project that contains your unit tests.
  7. Select a build configuration (e.g. release or debug) and click Next.
  8. Specify the name of your build server, e.g. TFSRTM
  9. Specify a local build directory on your build server, e.g. c:\builds
  10. Specify a drop location for your build output, e.g. \\TFSRTM\NightlyBuilds and then click Next.
  11. Click the Run tests checkbox, select the test list you want to associate with the build, and then click Next.
  12. Click Finish to create the team build type.
