TeamCity build dependencies and choosing the correct branch

I have a single project with three build configurations:

  1. Integration
  2. Deploy Dev
  3. Deploy Release

Build configs 2 and 3 are dependent on 1 via a snapshot.

  • bulk rename of files to lowercase in git
  • Where are Jgit javadocs?
  • Best practice to automatically initialize project (git + composer + bower etc.)
  • getting files in from previous commits with git when merging. efficiency
  • Keeping revision history from before copy/rename in svn -> git
  • Changes in upstream repo during open pull request ? (How) should I merge in my fork?
  • There are 3 VCS roots:

    1. Git – All (used with build config 1)
    2. Git – Develop (used with build config 2)
    3. Git – Master (used with build config 3)

    The default branch and branch specs are as follows:

    Git – All

    default branch:


    branch spec:


    Git – Develop

    default branch:


    branch spec:


    Git – Master

    default branch:


    branch spec:


    Here is the problem…

    When I run a build for the third build config, I want the dependency to check for integration builds on the master branch. It is not doing and will always use the default branch of the integration build config (currently develop).

    Is there a way to achieve what I want?

    • Have a single integration build config
    • Have a separate build config that is dependent on only develop branch updates
    • Have a separate build config that is dependent on only master branch updates

    The way I have done it in the past involved using multiple CVS end points on a single build config, which also seems wrong and I wanted to avoid that if possible.

  • Git: Maintaining third-party modules consisting of multiple directories
  • GIT and Perforce: the branching strategy
  • Git: commit message conventions/formats
  • Git hook not running 2 consecutive commands
  • git --bare clone analogue for Hg (Mercurial)
  • Can _netrc handle passphrases with spaces?
  • One Solution collect form web for “TeamCity build dependencies and choosing the correct branch”

    I would suggest using a variable for branch spec and VCS trigger. That allows you to reuse the VCS root, while still giving you the flexibility to choose the values in each build configuration.
