Date as build number

Our in-house build system uses the current date and time as the build number. For example, 20071207-1106. Is it possible to do this in TeamCity? If not, would it be considered for a future feature?

Gordon,

This is not yet possible, I'm afraid.

I've created an issue in our tracker to introduce the ability to reference build start time in build configuration properties: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/TW-4080
You can vote/watch for it.

I believe this can be achieved via a custom plugin to TeamCity, however.

Damn. I had just gotten that request from management yesterday. In particular, we want to tag builds in Subversion like that. Damn.

Will vote and watch.

Hello,

BTW, It is pretty simple to write a TC plugin which imlements such build number.
Please see example at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/TCD3/Typical+Plugins

Kind regards,

Btw. it is possible to write a PlugIn in .NET or must it be in Java?

The PlugIn Docs are, as usual by JetBrains, pretty unfinished.

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no way to write a similar .NET plugin, just because server-side part of TC is Java based.

With kind regards,
