How to harness teamcity power for a Continous Delivery scenario with ansible

Hello guys,

I am pretty new here and taking over some old jenkins ci server with a new mandate. I have hear great stuff from JetBrains so I downloaded the teamcity to a local server in order to achieve my mandate. Please I might not know all the jargon so be gentle thanks.

My mandate:

With my newly acquired ansible knowledge, I have a task of building a java maven web app with a CI server (Teamcity here) and have that CI server call ansible to deploy that build in another local test server.

In order to achieve that, I have few questions:

  1. Can TeamCity be used to fulfill that purpose?
  2. How and where TeamCity call external tools (shell script, python script) ?
  3. The version of TeamCity downloaded has 3 build agents, I am currently using the one bundled . I guess I will need 2 agents for this kind of tasks, how does everything fit together ?


Thank you in advance
