Is it possible to make personal builds show up for everyone?

Hi guys,

We're utilizing personal builds quite a bit (ie, branch remote runs). Now they only show up in the buildhistory for the user that triggered the build. Is it possible to change some setting to make personal builds viewable by everyone? (We are currently using search to find them, which is rather icky)

Hi

We have TW-3304 request to make personal builds visibly to TeamCity administrators. you can vote for it and watch for updates.

But why do you need to make them visible to everyone? It would expose a lot of useless data to your developers.

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks, voted for the issue.

In our workflow, our developers often collaborate on shortlived feature branches (ie, <2weeks). 1-2 developers + 1 tester. Using personal branches worked nicely for this, avoiding creating new configurations for all short branches ; but makes it tricky for the tester to locate new builds.

Thank you for explaining the use case!
we have a special request in TW-16052 to better support feature branch scenarios. I've added your feedback there.

It's probably a bug, but you can see personal builds from the Agnet's Build History tab

Actually, we do not consider personal builds as secret information.
They are hidden because in most cases they are useless for other people, not because they are private.
