Build Process


 We need to have access to the following software for creating and building build (To maintain the versions of your Project source code you need to have)-Access to Team Foundation Server (MSTFS) and Teamprise Explorer in your Local Machine or Citrix Box.

 Before sending the request to the Shared services Team, the Team lead of the requesting project Team will check-in code files and then check-out in Dev Environment.

 The Shared services Team (EIM-TCoE-Shared-Services) will receive the request from project team to create builds for Stage and Production environment deployments on Dev\SBE teams’ requests with all the details provided in the Template sheet.

 Based on the project team requirements, we will either use branch(this option will create a new folder with all files same as the source folder) or merge option(this option will copy the missing files to target when compared to source ) in the MSTFS to deploy the files in the respective environment (Either Stage or Production )

 After the files have been deployed in the Destination environment, we will queue the build using the following command ‘p: FilesToDeploy’. (Ex: p: FilesToDeploy="adw022040j.dsx, adw022042j.dsx")

 After clicking Queue button, it will start queue process. After it is successful then the Queue will show succeeded and available in Completed tab.

 Copy the build name and send it to the requestor. This window should contain Deployable folder and BuildLog. . If anything is missed in that.txt file. means creation of build (Queue) is wrong. It will open one window with your build definition name. After successful right click on that name and select open Drop Folder.
