How to get build status remotely.


I'm trying to hook TeamCity up to some traffic lights in our office. As I'm not a Java dev, I would prefer not to write a plugin. Is there seriously no way to query TeamCity for the current status of all build configs from a remote machine? REST api?

We have a version of REST plugin that is not yet bundled. It is compatible with TeamCity 5.0 EAP builds. As the plugin is still in experimental stage, there is no distribution available, just the sources.

Apart form the plugin and writing own plugin option, there are somewhat workaround approaches like parsing external status widget HTML or using our internal XML RPC protocol (so far, undocumentaed) which is used by IDE plugins.

You can also consider using some third-party plugins like Web Hooks which can send HTTP requests to your server on TeamCity events.
