package.deploy.cmd seems to be swallowing the return codes RRS feed

  • Question

  • User16290778 posted

    I run the package.deploy.cmd command that is generated by the msbuild package command.

    It works fine but it doesn't look like its sending msdeploy return codes back to the calling session. Even when msdeploy fails (as i see in the command output) it still sends back a "0" so as far as cmd is concerned it succeeded.

    Im calling this command from my CI server so it needs to find a non zero return code to know it failed. Looks like package.deploy.cmd is swallowing msdeploy return codes? Or is msdeploy.exe not sending return codes? is there a way to have it do this if it isn't?

    Hi red888,

    Could you please post the package command you have used to deploy the package?

    I suggest you could use VS open the package deploy cmd file, you could find below codes:

    According to the codes, you could find the cmd file use echo to show the message in the window.

    Since I don't know how you call this cmd file, I couldn't directly tell you how to get the echo value.

    I suggest you could try to get the cmd echo value, it will return the detail information about the deploy package.

    Best Regards,
