How can I configure TeamCity so that I receive a notification (email or tray) if an SVN Externals path is invalid?
The situation was that a build was not starting because the VCS root step failed with the following error:
Error collecting changes for VCS repository 'XYZ trunk'
Path is invalid:
An External declared on "XYZ trunk" pointed to an invalid path. This was committed, and no notifications were raised. The TeamCity Quick View shows a green light against the project, since the last actual build succeeded.
As things stand, the build is broken in that a checkout of the XYZ Trunk does not compile (missing external dll), but no notifications are sent and no error icons are shown in the tray.
This seems wrong - what have I not done?
