Remote Run questions

Hello,

I am currently trying out the Remote Run plugin for Visual Studio and I have a couple of questions I can't find an answer for in the doc.

  1. The Suitable Configurations tab of the Personal Build window contains a set of tick boxes corresponding to the tests that can be ran. Is it possible to globally specify which tests should run by default? Basically I'd like to ensure that everytime a programmer installs the Visual Studio plugin the right set of boxes are ticked.
  2. We currently use TeamCIty to run validation tests on assets checked in from a 3d modelling package (Maya). Would it be feasible to write a custom plugin for Maya that perforn pre-tested commit? I know how to write plugins for Maya (it's all in python) but I don't know if the TeamCity API provides enough hooks to write my home remote runner.



Thank you,

Clément

Hello, Clement. Thank you for your questions.

Is it possible to globally specify which tests should run by default?

Unfortunatly no, but selection in Suitable configurations tab will be saved and restored when user will use Remote run next time.

Would it be feasible to write a custom plugin for Maya that perforn pre-tested commit? ... I don't know if the TeamCity API provides enough hooks to write my home remote runner.

Yes it is possible. TeamCity server provide XmlRpc API for that purpose. If you will try, i will answer all of your implementation related questions.
Please let me know, what VCS do you use?
Also maybe you will be interesting in our Command line Remote Run tool, Branch Remote Run trigger for DVCS's.
