Team Build Action Build Tab
This tab of the Team Build action configures information about the project and server to build.
Command: Specifies the Team Foundation Build command to execute (default is Start).
Repository server URL: The repository URL where the solutions being built are checked in (required).
Team project: The team project name that has the solutions to be built (required).
Build type/definition: The build type or name of build definition in the team project to be used for the build (optional).
Build machine/Build number: If the command is "Start," this is the machine where the solutions need to be built. By default the build machine provided in the Build type field will be used. If the command is "Stop" or "Delete," this is the Build number(s) to be operated on.
Note: For the Start command, this field only applies to Team Foundation Build 2005 and should be blank for Team Foundation Build 2008 and later.
Build directory: The directory where the build process takes place (optional). By default the build directory specified in the Build type is used.
Note: When selecting the build directory, make sure there is enough space to build; insufficient space will lead to aborted builds.
