Possible to trigger a build based on TeamCity tags?


One of our build configurations for our main product allows us to select a specific build template, and then the build is tagged in TC with that template name. Additionally, I have sets of Coded UI tests I'd like to run automatically when a build with a specific tag is completed successfully. Is it possible to set up a Finish Build Trigger to only run if a specific TeamCity tag is present on that build?

Hi Drew,

No, it is not possible to trigger builds depending on TeamCity tags. Instead of using tags you can promote running build by clicking Actions > Promote... Will it work for you?

I'm curious about your answer.  I have a similar situation and want to know if you can promote in an automated fashion?  If someone tags a build (or wants to promote it) is there a way to promote without forcing the next build config to run, but instead queuing that build config for later execution.  Kind of a strange request I know.
