MSBuild vNext How to change agent working folder structure - rename 's', 'b', 'a' subfolders? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to implement folders structure similar to XAML builds: ..\Sources and ..\Binaries and I didn't find how to do it though ConfigureAgent.cmd or by changing settings.json file.

    Is there any way to change working folder structure and rename 's', 'b', 'a' subfolders?

  • These paths are defined by the agent and cannot/shouldn't be renamed. There is really no reason why you should. Perhaps you should describe why you need the folders renamed so we can provide you the "correct" solution. In general if you need a particular output structure (and who doesn't) then you use the various utility tasks to move files around after the build task but before you generate your final artifacts.
