NUnit runner

I have problems running a NUnit Step in a build configuration. This build configuration has a dependency on another Build configuration and the problem is when the step is trying to parse a parameter from the the configuration it depends on

Have a parameter in the buidl configuration

Optimera.Plattform.HttpTests =>\Optimera.Platform.Services.Tests\bin\Test\Optimera.Platform.HttpTests.dll

This parameter is used as in the the NUnit step in the parameter

Run tests from: %Optimera.Plattform.HttpTests%

Got the following error (extract from the log)

[13:08:15]Step 2/2: Test deployed services (NUnit) (4s)
[13:08:15][Step 2/2] Starting: D:\TeamCity\buildAgent\plugins\dotnetPlugin\bin\JetBrains.BuildServer.NUnitLauncher.exe #TeamCityImplicit

When setting the NUnit step parameter with the expanded value

Run tests from: D:\TeamCity\buildAgent\work\578657f15c2f69e6\Optimera.Platform.Services.Tests\bin\Test\Optimera.Platform.HttpTests.dll

everything works ok.

Looks like theis has something to do when using parameters from a dependent build configuration

Am I right in understanding, that you are trying to run NUnit tests against some assembly, built by the build dependency of your build configuration?
If so, the better way is to publish this assembly as a Build Artifact by specifying artifact path in 1st configuration:


Then add Artifact Dependency to the dependent build and supply only the name 'Optimera.Platform.HttpTests.dll' to the 'Run tests from' parameter of NUnit step.

Thanks for the tip.
This worked fine.
