Retrieving build related data from teamcity

We are using teamcity in our company. We change the build status by putting in custom statements like
##teamcity[buildStatus status='<status value>' text='{build.status.text} and some aftertext']

What I'm interested in is to retrieve these values in a later build.


build1 buildstatus="100 suites 15 failed"
build2 buildstatus="105 suites 17 failed"
build3 buildstatus="110 suites 12 failed"
build4 buildstatus="120 suites 10 failed"

In a different configuration i need to get a list of all the builds and the buildstatus for each of them. Along with this i may also need other data that i have outputted like
##teamcity[buildStatisticValue key='findbugs-total' value='230']

Can someone tell me how i can do this?

Build status can be obtained by REST API.

Ability to obtain statistics will be added to the plugin in next version TeamCity 6.5.
You can preview it a current EAP build.

Hi, using the REST API in Teamcity 6.5 I can see a lot of the built-in statistics, but a custom statistic that I'm publishing during the build is not showing up. Shouldn't I see this via REST?  I did see, but I can't tell if that's a related issue or not. Thanks.

Sorry for late response.

Yes, the custom properties should be published too.
Is this problem reproduced continuously?
Can you see the data on charts?

Has this issue been sorted out?

I am interested in upgrading to 6.5 or 7.0 (currently on 6.0), and I am interested in the ability to query for custom statistics via the REST API.

Should this be working?  Specifically, if I set a custom statistic using "##teamcity[buildStatisticValue..." can I later read those statistics about ther build via the REST API?

I just ran some tests with TC7 and I did get statistics to show up via the
REST api, but I had to define a chart for each stat (as Michael was
implying in his message). Without the charts the stats do not show up.
