VSTS Build Task Spanning Multiple Team Projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server onsite Version 15.117.26714.0. I have multiple .net projects that need to be built together. Some are grouped in a solution sitting in team project $/A, the rest are grouped in a solution sitting in team project $/B. I'm trying to create a Get Sources task that can retrieve both sets of sources and two Build Solution tasks to do the compiling. In the Get Sources task the Repository is $/A and I cannot browse above that to the parent of A and B. Even though I hardcode an additional mapping to $/B the task doesn't retrieve those files, and so the build task fails because there's no source. 

    Is there another way of doing this? I really need to combine and automate the building of these two solutions. I didn't split them across team projects, I'm just trying to pick the pieces up.
