possible to inject fake VCS events for testing?

Answered

I recently had a need to test my VCS roots, branch filters and triggers. At the time, the easiest way to do this was by making trivial changes in real code repositories and then observing the live build system responses. I would prefer something that was easier to setup and less obtrusive to unrelated production code repos.

Is it possible to inject "GitHub events" (for example) into my TeamCity server to get around this testing issue?

Thanks,

 

Rob.

Hello Rob,

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately at the moment there is no dedicated functionality to probe the triggering settings. You can just commit a change and see what happens. We have a related feature request that you can vote for: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/TW-7113

You are welcome to comment the issue describing how would you imagine the feature to work.

Thanks Alina!

I added some comments along with ideas that would make it easier to implement (a REST endpoint) as well as highlighting the benefits for users.

Rob.
